Erik Anderson is an embedded counselor at Michigan Engineering in the Counseling and Psychological Services, known as CAPS. The Positive Chalking event on Monday, October 30th, 2017 is co-sponsored by CAPS and the Office of Student Affairs. The event will take place from 11AM-1PM in the Duderstadt Connector.
Your words matter and we want to hear from you! Positive chalking brings our values and messages, individual and shared, from our minds into three-dimensional public spaces.
Every chalked message will reflect a real-world effort put forth by a fellow student, who can bring attention to words that are meaningful or hopeful to them. It is a concrete way to express and visually appreciate the thoughts and intentions of others in a deeply personal way.
We invite all of North Campus to come together and build a sense of community. Let’s share messages of love, acceptance, tolerance, resilience, hope, compassion, kindness, and courage.
Last November, over 800 students participated in a positive chalking event on North Campus after the election. Students were encouraged to express themselves creatively through both color and content. Many of you used the opportunity to claim this public space with beautiful messages of hope, compassion, understanding, and possibility.
Please join CAPS and the Office of Student Affairs in spreading these colorful positive messages on the grounds of the Duderstadt, and carry them with you as you study, work and thrive here at Michigan Engineering.
