Across the nation, colleges and universities have become increasingly concerned about student wellbeing. Students report more loneliness, sadness, and overwhelmedness than prior generations - and Biola students do, too. We'll talk about how an ancient near-eastern practice may provide a pathway for us as followers of God to turn toward and receive each other as part of God's family, even when we feel most alone.

Speakers

Lisa Igram

Before coming to Biola in 2009 to complete Talbot's M.Div. Spiritual Formation & Soul Care program, Lisa worked for 7 years in International Education, earning an MA in TESOL from Azusa Pacific University, teaching English overseas and then working as Director of International Students Programs at Hope International University. After six years as Associate Dean of Spiritual Development, where she offered pastoral care and helped with chapel programming, and Lisa now leads efforts to create preventative and proactive strategies for student well-being as the Dean of Student Wellness. When she’s not on campus, she’s living one of her life-long dreams: sitting in her cozy living room, reading through colorful stacks of books for her doctorate in Divinity and Religious Studies (coffee, anyone?).
