Mile in Her Shoes / Creating Sustainable Communities
While the image of male USF students walking around campus in high heels is pretty funny, the reason why a few hundred of them recently did so is decidedly serious. This week's University Beat on WUSF-TV takes you to "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes," an event designed to raise awareness about relationship violence and sexual assault.
Students in USF Saint Petersburg’s Leadership program are teaming up with faculty and local community members on “Creating Sustainable Communities,” a project inspired by author and educator Margaret J. Wheatley. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 FM tells you more about the project and Dr. Wheatley’s upcoming appearance at USF Saint Pete.
Stephen Ritch, Director of the USF St. Petersburg Bishop Center for Ethical Leadership, answers the questions “Why the concept of ‘Creating Sustainable Communities’ and what does such work entail?”
Stephen Ritch talks about how the Leadership program and the Sustainable Communities project fit into USF’s overall goals.
