NewsBreak


The NewsBreak current events dialogue series was initiated to encourage the expression of critical thought and leadership through engagement in a facilitated discussion, that gauges and challenges individual responses to recent events in the global, national, and campus community.

This is a new Nyumburu Program and is designed to appeal to both commuter and residential students. NewsBreak offers light refreshments to students who are on the go, but are looking for a place to have lunch, meet new people and expand their worldview on topics related to civic engagement, popular culture, campus diversity issues, politics, health, and student leadership.

At present, NewsBreak is geared toward undergraduate residential and commuter students. Students are identified throughout the campus to promote diversity and inclusion. However, we would also like to encourage participation from more graduate students, campus staff, and faculty.
