Participants will learn what steps they can take to alleviate homelessness and poverty and can gain greater appreciation for the Blessed Sacrament. This presentation will be held as part of Villa’s annual Heritage Week and as part of the College’s My Brother’s Keeper Series.
Dr. Charles Walker has been a longtime Professor of Psychology at SBU and is noted as a devoted enthusiastic and compassionate teacher as well as an innovator. He has published numerous articles on both research and teaching and has frequently presented at national and international conferences. His goal is to inspire students to not only excel academically, but to “live their lives joyfully.” He is the creator and manager of the popular website, “Well-Being in Higher Education,” which helps students and faculty alike assess and strengthen their well-being. Come and be inspired by Dr. Walker as he shares the connection between Happiness, Compassion and Well-Being.
My Brother’s Keeper is a Speaker Series at Villa Maria College that focuses on empowering our students to help one another by promoting health and wellness through communication about important issues.
