2016 Living Compassion Conference: Teaching Compassion: A Value for Life
April 8, 2016 (8:30-4:00 pm; registration begins at 8:00 AM)
This one day conference provides NAU faculty, students, staff, and community members an opportunity to learn about compassion and compassion-inspired work taking place in the NAU and Flagstaff communities. The event will be held in the NAU DuBois ballroom on South Campus. The opening session begins at 8:30 am, but come early to enjoy a few refreshments! Session speakers will be examining the value of compassion, its philosophical roots, its application to teaching and learning, and its relevance to service and being a part of one's community. In addition, there are four workshops to choose from (see program).
There is no conference registration fee. In addition to lunch, refreshments will be available all day. Student volunteers will assist student in completing sign up sheets if receiving credit for attendance. If community members are interested, a certificate of participation can also be received for conference attendance.
Please see this year's conference program. This program may be updated if there are any changes.
Although the conference is FREE, NAU parking is $7 for an all day pass. For information about how and where to purchase a parking permit, see instructions about parking.
