Nursing Honors Students Participate in Catalyst

College of Nursing honors students participated in Catalyst on April 7, 2021. 

Catalyst is a one-day program offered through the Jones Center of Learning and Service designed for emerging student leaders who are interested in starting something extraordinary.

Participating in Catalyst is a first step in the life-long process of learning, exploration, and action. The program is designed to allow participants the time and space to connect with others and engage in learning more about their own story of leadership.

While appropriate for a variety of participants, Catalyst was designed primarily for individuals who are open to the exploration of authenticity, connection, and commitment while increasing their capacity to lead. They might currently be members of standing organizations or groups or be exploring involvement and action in the greater community.

The content of the program was designed to meet the multiple learning styles of each group. Participants are engaged in small group dialogue, large group interaction, and personal reflection. The content of this day pushes participants to get real with themselves. At the end of this experience, participants leave compelled to start a new habit, to persist, and to live in possibility.
