Dickinson Copes


Dickinson Copes is a weekly opportunity for members of the Dickinson community to come together to acknowledge our shared lived experience of the pandemic and other challenges we have all been facing. Participants will be encouraged to share their unique perspectives of our current situation and provide mutual support to each other. All are welcome to join us for this brief period of togetherness each week, but we will invite specific staff and faculty members each week who students might not have the chance to hear from regularly. Dickinson Copes will be hosted by Rabbi Marley Weiner, Director of the Milton B. Asbell Center for Jewish Life, Todd Nordgren, Director of the Office of LGBTQ services and Don Domenici, Executive Director of the Wellness Center.

Wednesdays from 5-5:30pm
