Village Meetings

Village Meetings occur every month at Pearson College. These are times when the approximately 250 members of the Pearson community gather to discuss ideas and issues relevant to living together on campus. Students learn conflict resolution skills, public speaking and active listening firsthand at Village Meetings, which are based on the belief that there is wisdom in listening to the whole community before making major decisions. Meetings are facilitated by 2 students with planning sessions scheduled beforehand.
