Open Discussion

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Sunday, repeating until December 6, 2021

Dear AU Military Connected Students, as we prepare for the fall semester, I want to take a moment to address the evolving events in Afghanistan. If you’re like me, you’re vacillating somewhere between speechlessness and ranting raves. This is to be expected. We’re all experiencing the effects of *grief. The myriad of emotions associated with processing loss will look and feel different for each of us but are no less valid. Fortunately, we don’t have to grieve in isolation. There are over 500 military connected students at AU, and many more military-connected staff and faculty. With fall classes only a week away, and the capability to connect both in person and remote, there’s no better time for military-connected students to come together in solidarity.

Beginning Sunday, August 22nd @ 8p and every Sunday through December 12th (or until further notice), a Military Connected Club Executive will facilitate an open discussion for military-connected students interested in sharing their thoughts, feelings, concerns and/or comments. Regardless of the topic, we want to assure your voice is heard, concerns acknowledged, and any conflict appropriately resolved.

To that end, we encourage all military-connected students to join us in solidarity. United we’re far stronger than alone.
