On February 5, 2019, from 3:30-5:00pm, University College will host their third "This I Believe: OU" event in Meacham Auditorium. A select group of first-year students who took Gateway in Fall 2018 and faculty, staff, alumni, and community members will present their personal "This I Believe" essays. This event is a wonderful opportunity to come together as a community, share perspectives, and grow in our deepening understanding of human flourishing.
"This I Believe: OU" was originally created in partnership with OU's Institute for the Study of Human Flourishing, funded through a grant from the John Templeton Foundation. That grant ended in August 2018, but we are delighted that University College was able to continue the "This I Believe: OU" events.
Join us to hear OU freshman and other invited guests offer their personal reflections on what matters to them, viewed through the perspective of virtue. Invited guests include:
- Robert Con Davis-Undiano, Ph.D., Presidential Professor of English and Neustadt Professor of Comparative Literature
- J.D. Baker, OU alumnus and special assistant to the Oklahoma City Mayor
- Janna Storey Martin, Ph.D., OU alumnus and past High School teacher
- Clarke Stroud, Director of Football Operations for Coach Lincoln Riley at OU and past OU Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students
