Every Monday

In our efforts to help students learn skills that support their mental and emotional well-being, we will be offering a new program this fall:  Healthy Mondays.  This is a 5-week program, one hour each week, that will share with students the essential tools for dealing with stress. The groups will be small, 15 or less, will be led by upper-level students in counseling/nursing, and will finish before fall break. This program was developed by Syracuse University in conjunction with Johns Hopkins and has been used in the U.S. and abroad, with remarkable success. See below for the topics of each week. All students have to do is sign up, using the QR code provided or this link. Be sure to grab a spot before the sessions fill up!

Most Tolerant TownA Most Tolerant Little Town Book Signing

Presented by The College of Education, Elementary and Special Education
Wednesday, September 27
4:15-6:30 pm
College of Education (COE) 160
Join us as we welcome Rachel Louise Martin, author of A Most Tolerant Little Town. The first 25 students get a free book!
In graduate school, Rachel Martin volunteered with a Southern oral history project. One day, she was sent to a small town in Tennessee, in the foothills of the Appalachians, where locals wanted to build a museum to commemorate the events of September 1956, when Clinton High School became the first school in the former Confederacy to undergo court-mandated desegregation. But not everyone wanted to talk. As one founder of the Tennessee White Youth told her, “Honey, there was a lot of ugliness down at the school that year; best we just move on and forget it.” For years, Martin wondered what it was some white residents of Clinton didn’t want remembered. So she went back, eventually interviewing over sixty townsfolk—including nearly a dozen of the first students to desegregate Clinton High—to piece together what happened back in 1956: the death threats and beatings, picket lines and cross burnings, neighbors turned on neighbors and preachers for the first time at a loss for words. The national guard rushed to town, along with national journalists like Edward Morrow and even evangelist Billy Graham. But that wasn’t the most explosive secret Martin learned. In A Most Tolerant Little Town, Rachel Martin weaves together over a dozen perspectives in a kaleidoscopic portrait of a small town living through a tumultuous turning point for America. The result is a spellbinding mystery, a riveting piece of forgotten civil rights history, and a poignant reminder of the toll on those who stand on the frontlines of social change. You may never before have heard of Clinton, Tennessee—but you won’t be forgetting the town anytime soon.
