Lee, others engage MLK 'Cost of Silence' theme

In two provocative, faith-anchored campus talks to start a week of important conversations on race for the Saint Michael’s College community, the young southern preacher Robert Lee IV laid out a program for challenging white supremacy that emanates from “Power, the Pulpit and Policy.” Those themes culminated his keynote talk during the main MLK JR. Convocation late Monday in the College chapel, where hundreds of students, faculty, staff and wider community members also were transfixed and challenged by a message from Lauren Stone ’19 about “invisibility” and her too-often rough experiences living with disability. They also heard bracing and hopeful wisdom from President Jack Neuhauser, who was speaking one last time at this major annual campus gathering before his tenure winds down at the end of June.

Outbound, returned study-abroaders acclimate

More than 70 Saint Michael’s College students will be studying in 23 different countries during this Spring 2018 semester. “Whether they are learning about wildlife conservation in Tanzania, human rights in Argentina, or doing an internship in New Zealand, our students are spreading their wings and figuring out what it means to go beyond their comfort zones,” said Peggy Imai, director of the College’s Study Abroad Office. She said 22 Saint Michael’s students studied abroad during the Fall 2017 semester, and five students also spent the recent winter session studying art, culture and philosophy in Nepal.
