Speak honestly, be brief, and listen from the heart. These are three main rules of Way of Council, a facilitated dialogue that brings total strangers -- both international and domestic students -- together to listen and share stories about a given topic, theme, or prompt.
Come prepared to be present, listen, and share stories. Way of Council should last about an hour, and you are invited to share a meal (dinner will be provided) with participants following the Council. Please be prompt as the Council will begin right at 7:00pm. Everyone is welcome. No prior experience with Way of Council is necessary.
