Starr King’s second Symposium, “Loving Our Earth,” will be held on August 28-29, 2013 and will focus on environmental justice. This urban retreat is an annual gathering of our entire student body, faculty, staff and trustees for two days of learning, ritual, celebration, food, music, community-building and service. This 2013 Symposium is led by Dean Gabriella Lettini in collaboration with other SKSM faculty and community leaders. Starr King students are requested to enroll. Graduates are warmly invited to participate. Several public events in connection with the Symposium are open to all. This year our guest scholar is Dr. Joanna Macy. Travel fellowships for low residency students available. Look for full program, which will be posted online and distributed in Spring 2013. Environmental Justice will be explored in other 2013-2014 courses and will be a study theme for the year. This is a required course for all SKSM students.
