Being a part of the Post University family whether you are a student, faculty member, or associate we must continually be in the process of change. Adapting to new environments, making them your own but not conforming to strict standards that don’t reflect who you are is important.
Change is hard, but it’s necessary. Here are some good questions to ask yourself as you consider how well you’re handling change.
Ask yourself this:
- How open am I to change?
- Am I becoming a better listener?
- When will I begin to ask more questions?
- Can I become comfortable with ambiguity?
- How adaptable am I as I begin to lead?
In recognition of LGBTQ History Month in October, we want to celebrate and educate our community about the experiences of LGBTQ+ identities and the history of gay rights and related civil rights movements.
During this time, we will recognize the contributions and histories of LGBTQ+ people across the United States. LGBTQ+ History Month was started in 1994 by Missouri high school history teacher Rodney Wilson and gained early support from organizations such as GLAAD & the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network (GLSEN).
October also includes National Coming Out Day (October 11), the Anniversary of the death of Matthew Shepard (October 12, 1998), the Anniversary of the LGBT March on Washington on October 14, 1979, and Spirit Day on October 20.
LGBTQ+ people exist anywhere and everywhere and have contributed to all parts of life. From science and technology to arts and culture to foster a civil society and beyond, the LGBTQ+ community deserves to exist as their full selves everywhere. This month, we honor that existence with history, and that resiliency of creating lives we want to live, no matter the cost.
On October 11, take the pledge to stand up against hate and exclusion, to stay informed about LGBT issues.”
#PostSTEAMtober and Media Literacy Week
Post Peace Crane Project and Content Creation Contest
In honor of STEAMtober and Media Literacy Week, The Communication & Media Studies program at Post University is hosting a Content Creation Contest.
The content for the contest will showcase the Post Peace Crane Project, which kicks off Sept. 21. The project, which will run through Oct. 24., brings together the Post University community in a goal of creating 1,000 paper cranes as a symbol of goodwill.
To enter, create a piece of social media content for the platform of your choice (Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Snapchat, Twitter, YouTube, etc.).
Entries should be visual content, such as a graphic, photo or video, and should showcase and promote the Post Peace Crane Project, which is for both campus and remote students and faculty. Students can showcase their own paper cranes, or those made by peers. Hashtags for the project are #PostPeaceCraneProject and #PostSTEAMtober.
This contest is an exercise in the “Create” and “Act” components of Media Literacy. Finalists’ entries will be shared on Post University’s social media accounts.
Students may enter the contest in two categories:
- Team (club, sports team, student group, group of peers)
To enter or for more information, send student(s) names and your social media content to Kellie Lambert, Program Chair of Communication & Media Studies, [email protected]. The deadline for entries is Friday, Oct. 21, 2022.
Content entries will be judged by a panel of experts. Winners will be announced during Media Literacy Week, which is Oct. 24 to Oct. 28.
