Café Trois:

Location:  PUB Lounge

Focus: In honor of Valentine’s Day and lifelong love of learning, the Clark community will focus on learning the art of listening in the first hour and practice their skills by listening one-on one to each other in the second hour. Participants can share anything they wish to share and be really listened to. Great forum for getting things off your chest, airing an idea, making a decision, or expressing a dream you have.


Tuesday, April 29, 3:00-5:00

Café Quatre:

Location:  PUB Lounge


Option 1:  Possible Decision or Policy Input. Based more on the model of America Speaks where participants actually vote on ideas after discussion and enter both their votes and comments into a computer bank. Decision point may come from administration or from issues raised by the Clark community.

Option 2: Students Take Center. Fish Bowl where students discuss topics while rest of Clark community listens. Opportunity after the fish bowl for gathered reflection.


Monday, June 2, 3:00-5:00

Café Cinq:

Location:  PUB Lounge

Focus: Open Café. Topics to be suggested ahead of time by Clark Community. It is important that administration participate in this café in order to hear what is being said on campus first hand.
