Russia and Ukraine discussed tomorrow night in Hoover 105

Monday, March 28th, 2022

Two people with extended experience in Russia and Ukraine will visit campus tomorrow night (Wednesday) to discuss what civility might look like in the Russia/Ukraine relationship. The session will be in Hoover 105 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Johan Maurer lived in Russia for 10 years, teaching English and working with Quaker meetings in that country. Stu Willcuts has decades of experience delivering aid to crisis-torn nations, including in Ukraine after the Russian invasion of the Crimea and Donbas regions of eastern Ukraine.

War is the worst-case scenario when civility breaks down. Maurer and Willcuts will share their perceptions of what caused such a catastrophic breakdown between Russia and Ukraine. Did they ever enjoy a civil, productive relationship? How did the relationship deteriorate? What effects has it had? Is there a path toward building a constructive, civil relationship?

The public is welcome. A Zoom link will be available; watch for it on the Civility Project website. If you have questions, contact project director Ron Mock at civility@georgefox.edu.

Survey: Native American/Indigenous Resilience

Sunday, March 27th, 2022

We are conducting a PsyD dissertation research project, “Resilience and Cultural Connectiveness within the Native American/Indigenous Population,” and would appreciate your feedback. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete our survey.

We are looking for participants with any Native American/American Indian Indigenous heritage. The purpose of this research is to show how resilience/strength, cultural identity, spiritual identity, and cultural connectiveness are reflected within the Indigenous population.

At the end of the survey is the option to enter a raffle (rewards include three $100 Visa gift cards) as a thank you. We have received IRB approval through George Fox, and as a tribal partnership project we place an emphasis on participant safety and a culturally humble approach to Indigenous research.

Thank you for considering participation in our research. If you have any questions, concerns or feedback, please feel free to contact Winston Seegobin at wseegobin@georgefox.edu or Lindsay Price at lprice18@georgefox.edu.
