The Graduate School and the staff at the Bobo Spiritual Life Center work together to support students' spiritual development during graduate school. Spiritual Life events occur weekly, involving lunch or a light breakfast and an informal lecture. We are pleased to announce an expansion of our graduate student spiritual life events for the 2015-16 academic year. In addition to the talks scheduled each semester, there is now a Graduate Student Hour, Study, Sabbath, Repeat: Coffee and Mindfulness Techniques. This is a time for graduate students to connect with one another and discuss topics involving spiritual life in grad school, pedagogy, and other topics, driven by your interests and concerns.
