Mind Body Spirit

Hello, Saints! 


It is hard to believe that we have been publishing the Mind Body Spirit e-newsletter for almost a year now. We developed it at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic as a simple way to connect with our alumni, parents, and friends since it was unlikely we would be able to gather in person for a while. The content was focused on small ways for us to support your mind, body, and spirit in this period of social distancing.


As we look to the future, we need to decide if we will continue with this newsletter and if so, how we can improve it. Part of our goal was to have our alumni and friends share their knowledge and talents with the rest of the Carroll community. I believe that input from others will be the key to keeping this newsletter interesting and relevant if we continue publishing it. For example, if you have just seen a special video, article, or podcast that you believe would be interesting to others in our community, please feel free to share your suggestions with our office by emailing alumni@carroll.edu.

As part of our evaluation of the Mind Body Spirit newsletter, we have developed a short survey that will not take more than a couple of minutes to complete. The link to this survey will take you directly to the form and we ask that you complete it no later than Friday, February 19. 

This week we are proud to share these resources:

Toufic El Rassi is the author of Arab in America, a coming-of-age graphic memoir that documents his lived experiences and sheds light on the racism and unconscious biases that he has systematically encountered as an Arab American. Carroll senior Josh Turner was so moved by the memoir – especially the depiction of the harmful impact of unconscious bias – that he reached out to the author who graciously agreed to speak with him. Watch the interview here.
