ELL Volunteers Info Session F: 11/9/18 at Noon

Learn about becoming an ELL volunteer in the local public middle and high schools while having pizza with the children

We are having a pizza lunch with our ELL middle schoolers on Friday, November 9, 2018 from 12:00PM-1:00PM in the Common Room of the Romance Languages Building (300 High St.).

This is one of the best ELL events of the year because we get to hang out with the kids in a more relaxed, fun setting, while enjoying delicious Domino’s pizza!  (The kids’ favorite 🙂

Current tutors will also be there to share their experiences. And you can meet Professor Hepford who is offering an ESL methods class next semester!

There are many kids in the public schools in need of ELL assistance! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Understanding Self and Others: A Group for Female-Identified Students

Hey Wesleyan!
We are bringing this group back due to its immense popularity last year:
Understanding Self and Others: A Group for Female-Identified Students
Mondays 5 – 6 PM
Solarium, 2nd Floor Davison Health Center

First Group Meeting: Monday September 24th 2018

This group will help you better understand yourself, how you relate to others, how others relate to you, and new ways of connecting to others. It is designed for female-identified students who:

  • Have concerns about important relationships
  • Can feel dissatisfied, frustrated, or angry in groups
  • Experience difficulty trusting others
  • Struggle to forge meaningful relationships
  • Feel they have to please others
  • Struggle to communicate thoughts, feelings, and needs directly
  • Feel controlling (or easily controlled) in relationships
  • Feel lonely

This is a “closed” group, which means new members cannot join once the group has begun.   If you are interested in joining, please use the link below to complete the survey.


We hope to see you at CAPS!

CSPL 330 now open to First Year Students

Open to First Year Students
Policy and Strategy in War and Peace

CSPL 330
Fall 2018
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: GOVT 330

This course explores how the relations, relationships, and discourse between senior national civilian and military leaders influence the development and execution of policy and strategy in war and peace. In theory, the purpose of war is to achieve a political end that sees a better peace. In practice, the nature of war is to serve itself if it is not influenced and constrained by continuous discourse and analysis associated with good civil-military relations between senior leaders. This course begins with discussion of the key foundational works to build a common understanding. It then explores how civil-military interaction influenced strategy in war and peace for each decade from the Vietnam War to the present. The readings and seminar discussions also examine how the outcomes of wars influenced civil-military relations and the subsequent peace or wars. This course lies at the intersection of international relations, history, and conflict studies. Students will gain greater understanding of how U.S. policy makers, strategy, and war interact, while honing their critical thinking and writing skills.
