Class Gift Opportunity

 

Dear Class of 2005:
 
As was announced last night at the alumni reception, our class gift to YDS will be a donation to the Annual Fund in memory of Jason Richardson.

The Annual Fund provides scholarships to current students, and we thought that this was a great way to both remember Jason and give something back to YDS.

The class agents will be in the Common Room from 11-1:30 all next week (April 18-22) collecting donations.  You may donate with either cash or a check, but please make checks payable to Yale Divinity School and write "Class of 2005" on the memo line. 

 

If you have any questions, please let us know.


Thanks.

Robin Walker, "The Impact of the Mass Media on the Psychological and Social Development of Adolescents in the United States"   In the last 30 years, the media (television, radio, print and the Internet) has influentially changed the way that adult Americans see and think about themselves as well as the way they think about others and the world. This presentation will illustrate how the relational impact of the mass media has been even more influential on the development of today's youth (aged from 18 to 24 years) than in previous generations.
AND
Lisa Berlinger, "Leadership Competencies: An Approach to Effective Ecclesial Learning." In this talk she will introduce the concept of leadership competencies in the context of Christian ministry and demonstrate concretely how leadership competencies can be used to increase the ability of Christian leaders to learn and to lead.  Brief attention will be paid to the Leadership Competency the president of Harvard does not understand and what keeps him from learning it.
