    Listening to others' stories helps to build compassion and empathy so that we can gain acceptance of other cultures.  This presentation will highlight the story of one man's flight from political oppression of his homeland and the lasting impact on his family.  As a child of an immigrant and a first-generation college graduate, I have navigated two diverse cultures for the past 50 years of my life.  I challenged my father's culture as well as embraced my heritage and forged a new path for myself.  Come and listen to my story and gain a new perspective on cultural diversity, compassion, and acceptance.

    Instructor:  Amy Davis

    In this Earth Day workshop participants will examine how personal lifestyle choices and societal services affect global resource use.  After Calculating our "ecological footprints" using the Global Footprint Network model, we will explore strategies for personally reducing waste at home, increasing the sustainability of our purchasing habits, and rethinking the way we look at resource use.  We can all take steps towards the same goal:  reduce, reuse, recycle, and rethink.

    The Old York Trail was probably a buffalo trail first, then definitely a Native American Trail, then a pioneer trail bringing settlers to Central Illinois.  Later the trail was used to transport farm produce to the Wabash River for transport to be sold as well as purchasing supplies from the thriving city of York on the Wabash River.  The stories that are being collected are an amazing historical account of our ancestors and early pioneers who were instrumental in making central Illinois a home for their descendants and those who came after them.

    Instructor:  Carolyn Stephens

    Stephens was awarded the Illinois Community College Faculty Assoc. Dr. Joseph T. Cipfl Faculty Research/Workshop Grant to study this historic trail of which the Lincoln Family traveled in part when migrating from Indiana to Illinois.
