1:30 pm - 2:30 pm    Mindset Workshop

Workshop / Counseling and Psychological Services

Mindset. From earliest childhood, we establish a fixed or growth mindset. Those who foster a fixed mindset believe their abilities are limited and worry excessively about meeting the expectations of others, living in fear of judgment. They under-perform due to perfectionism and anxiety and avoid or make excuses. Those with a growth mindset believe anything is possible with effort. They are willing to take healthy risks and view challenges as opportunities. They perform to their ability and often exceed the expectations of others, but aren’t afraid to fail, viewing mistakes as key to learning. This workshop will outline the characteristics of the growth mindset; provide examples from academics, the arts, athletics and business; and summarize activities conducive to the development of such a perspective. Please call to reserve a seat, 797-1012.

Special Event / Other

Jessica Ravitz, former Salt Lake Tribube religion writer and now a reporter for CNN, will speak to students during a Morris Media and Society Lecture sponsored by the Journalism and Communications Department. As a CNN reporter, she gained exclusive access to Aesha Mohammadzai, the Afghan woman whose face - brutally disfigured by her Taliban husband and his family - was featured on the cover of TIME Magazine in 2010. Aesha's story, though, had not been told. Not fully. Not until Ravitz won the confidence of the maimed Afghan woman and her protectors. Ravitz has won the National Headliner Award for online-only writing. Her stories from the Gulf Coast and Alaska helped CNN win the Peabody Award for coverage of the BP oil disaster. Ravitz had earned recognition by the Religion Newswriters Association for her contribution to the CNN Belief Blog. For more information, call the JCOM department at 435-797-3292.
