    [2013-01-21 Block 5] Omar Offendum by Offemdum, Omar

    The First Mondays Event Series is a campus-wide forum that aims to engage all members of the CC community, including students, staff, administrators and faculty. The series creates opportunities for the whole community to gather, encouraging everyone to be part of the intellectual life of the college, and facilitating discourse among students, faculty, and staff, across courses, disciplines, and divisions. This First Mondays Event features Omar Offendum. Born in Saudi Arabia to Syrian parents and raised in the Washington, D.C., area, hip-hop artist Omar Offendum uses his lyrical talents to bridge his Middle Eastern roots to his Western upbringing. Offendum began his rap career as one-half of the N.O.M.A.D.S., an Arab/African-American hip-hop duo. In 2010, he released his first solo album, "SyrianamericanA." His songs, which are often political, resonate with Arab youth, many of whom have embraced one of America's most popular forms of protest music: hip-hop. This event was sponsored by the Colorado College IDEA Space, Cultural Attractions Fund, and President's Circle. This event was presented at Colorado College, Armstrong Hall, January 21, 2013.

    Pete Earley : Crazy : a father's search through America's mental health madness by Earley, Pete

He is best known as the author of "CRAZY: A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness," which was one of two finalists for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize. His book tells two stories. The first is his struggle to get his son help after he develops a severe mental illness. The second story is based on nine months that Earley spent inside the Miami Dade County jail where he followed persons with mental disorders through the criminal justice system and out into the streets to see what happened to them. His book has won awards from the American Psychiatric Association, National Alliance on Mental Illness, and Mental Health America. This event was sponsored by the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI), AspenPointe, the CC disability services office, Boettcher Health Center, the CC psychology department, GROW, SPILL, Disabilities Awareness Group (DAwG), and the Cultural Attractions Fund.

    The First Mondays Event Series is a campus-wide forum that aims to engage all members of the CC community, including students, staff, administrators and faculty. The series creates opportunities for the whole community to gather, encouraging everyone to be part of the intellectual life of the college, and facilitating discourse among students, faculty, and staff, across courses, disciplines, and divisions. This First Monday Event is titled Tourist to a Warm World: A glimpse in to the last great global greenhouse. A lecture by Kirk Johnson, PhD, vice president of research and collections and chief curator with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Dr Johnson studies fossil leaves to reconstruct ancient landscapes, using geological records to understand rapid contemporary trends of climate change. Earth’s climate has fluctuated between Icehouse and Greenhouse conditions, alternating between periods that sustained huge ice caps and times when there was almost no ice at all. During Greenhouse conditions, in the not-so-distance past, both Greenland and Antarctica were covered by forests! The state of Colorado preserves particularly rich records of the periods of lush vegetation and abundant water, providing a glimpse in an entirely different Planet Earth, with an environment that may help us to better understand temperature changes that are occurring in our own time. This event was sponsored by the Academic Events Committee. This lecture was presented at Colorado College, Shove Chapel, March 26, 2012.

    [2013-02-18 Block 6] Vincent Stanley : the responsible company : what we've learned from Patagonia's first 40 years

    The First Mondays Event Series is a campus-wide forum that aims to engage all members of the CC community, including students, staff, administrators and faculty. The series creates opportunities for the whole community to gather, encouraging everyone to be part of the intellectual life of the college, and facilitating discourse among students, faculty, and staff, across courses, disciplines, and divisions. This First Monday Event features Vincent Stanley, the current VP of marketing at the clothing company Patagonia, and co-author with Yvon Chouinard of "The Responsible Company: What We've Learned From Patagonia's First 40 Years" will speak on his recently published book and his experiences with Patagonia since the company's founding in 1973. Patagonia, named by Fortune in 2007 as the coolest company on the planet, has earned a reputation as much for its ground-breaking environmental and social practices as for the quality of its clothes. In "The Responsible Company," Chouinard and Stanley recount how the company and its culture gained the confidence, by step and misstep, to make its work progressively more responsible, and to ultimately share its discoveries with companies as large as Wal-Mart or as small as the corner bakery. This event was sponsored by The State of the Rockies Project. This lecture was presented at Colorado College, Armstrong Hall, February 18, 2013.
