From the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences:
Please join us April 17 for "Freed Speech: Dialogues on Civil Discourse," a second special event on the important topic of civility presented by Target, Studio/E, and the College of Arts and Sciences.
"Freed Speech" seeks to change the substance of today's conversations so we can share important thinking through constructive discourse, rather than shrill and divisive banter. Studio/E's founder Nate Garvis, the author of "Naked Civics," will moderate an interactive examination of listening with civility that will include a neuroscientist, a musician and a strategic communicator - plus a little magic.
Tickets for "Freed Speech" are free, but space is limited, so your prompt RSVP is appreciated. We look forward to an engaging evening of open discussion and respectful dialogue. For more information or to register, please visit http://www.stthomas.edu/freedspeech.

RSVP? Yes please, ASAP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All JPST alumni and students (all years) are invited!
Our graduating JPST students are thinking about what they’re going to do after they graduate. So once again we would like to bring graduates and local alumni together to meet and greet and eat a bit too, while generally networking.
This year, in fact, we’re inviting all JPST majors and minors (not just seniors) to join us, in order to introduce Dr. Finnegan.
Two ways for alumni to participate:
1. Come! ‘Nuff said, except please RSVP to email@example.com.
2. Volunteer by clicking here! JPST folks do that pretty well, right? We’re looking for 4-5 alums to serve on the panel, tell us what you’ve done with your JPST major, and answer questions from current seniors about how network and pursue their vocations.
Amid a Q&A between the panel and graduating seniors, there will be refreshments and the opportunity for alumni and soon-to-be-alumni to connect.
• Have access to expert skills-based training, resources, materials and year-round support from Oxfam staff;
• Establish connections and share knowledge with college students from the US and beyond;
• Develop confidence and lifelong skills to create positive, lasting social change, and
• Are part of an active and growing global network of peers and alumni working on justice issues.
Applications are due on April 1, 2013. Accepted students participate in a week-long training in Boston from July 20-26, 2013, which is organized and paid for by Oxfam. Students must agree to join or form an Oxfam Club and implement an Oxfam campaign on campus during the 2013-14 academic year, as well as communicate regularly with Oxfam staff about their work.
