Dr. Christena Cleveland will discuss, “What Does the Cross Mean in an Unequal World”
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” – Mary Oliver
Searching for meaningful work is nothing new, and Ms. Oliver’s words have inspired generations of readers to consider the weight of their vocational decisions. But this weight seems particularly burdensome for university students today. In the midst of picking majors, landing internships, and “finding your passion,” students must reconcile several competing influences while building concepts of work and purpose. Personal interest, practicality, social expectations, financial sustainability, where to live, that intangible sense of purpose – with so much to consider, it can be easy to lose sight of the question in favor of manufacturing the “right” answer. This interactive discussion between three alumni will center on how they have navigated these tensions in their own careers, and how worldview shapes the space between questions and answers.

In this panel, Evelynn Ellis and Sunny Nam discuss the role of music in their lives and at Dartmouth. We will consider the ways art can do the work of connecting communities and sustaining the soul. How can we use the arts to engage across cultural and racial divides and to build trust?

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
How does the Christian worldview find hope in dark times and make sense of troubled histories? In this panel, we feature the voices of Dartmouth alumni Annie McCune, ‘79 and N. Bruce Duthu, ‘80 who will reflect on the College’s history and share their stories of faith at Dartmouth as one of the first female students and as a native student, respectively.

X.ado (ZAH-doh) is Dartmouth College’s co-ed, Christian a cappella group. Our name has two parts: the Greek letter Chi is the first letter in Xristos which means Christ, and “ado” means “to sing for”. Founded in 1992, we’ve spent 25 years sharing the good news of Christ through music. Our repertoire ranges from gospel to choral to pop, and our venues range from Dartmouth fraternities to churches to locations like Seattle, WA or Seoul, South Korea during our annual tour!Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
Please join us for a short reflective time where we will take stock of what we have learned and imagine where the road might take us from here.
“What does it mean to be an agent of reconciliation, and how can we carry what we have learned back to the unique spaces we each occupy? Discovering the answer to this question may not be easy, but it begins in supportive community – not isolation.
To close out the conference, we will take stock of our individual hopes and goals for reconciliation in our contexts. Then, we will learn from one another’s experiences and share concrete suggestions for moving those hopes closer to reality. Everyone is strongly encouraged to participate in this short but powerful activity where we pull together what we have learned and imagine the next steps of the journey.”Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
