Event Image Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of the National Park Service The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. Exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Applied Mathematics Colloquium - Will Kleiber
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Will Kleiber, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder
Multivariate Random Fields

Most modern spatial datasets involve multiple variables that can exhibit complex cross-process dependencies.  We 
review some classic approaches to building statistical models for multivariate spatial data, nearly all of which rely on
specifying cross-covariance functions. We discuss an alternative viewpoint in the spectral domain that helps to
illustrate fundamental limitations on existing models, and suggests insights into, and dangers of, popular constructions.
The second half of the talk focuses on multivariate modeling for very large spatial datasets. We show that a
multiresolution construction can approximate standard models, and retains computationally efficient algorithms for
estimation and prediction.

The role of large environmental noise in masting: General model and example from pistachio trees

Masting is synchronous, highly variable reproduction in a plant population, or synchronized boom–bust cycles of reproduction. These pulses of resources have cascading effects through ecosystems, and thus it is important to understand where they come from. How does masting happen and synchronize?  Here we suggest a novel mechanism for masting, which is inspired by data from a pistachio orchard. We test its plausibility through development and analysis of a mathematical model of plant reproduction, which is based on the simple resource budget model for plant reproduction.

Our results suggest that large environmental noise may be a crucial part of the mechanism of masting in many types of plant populations, including pistachio.  These include plants that are not pollen-limited (including
self-pollinating species), dioecious species (pollen decoupled from female flowers, as in pistachio), and/or plants that reproduce every year.  Moreover, our model can account for synchrony of masting among different species
of plants, which are decoupled (not pollen-coupled) by definition.  This is also a specific example of an important functional consequence of the interactions between stochasticity and nonlinearity.

Event Image The Sun and its Extreme Space Weather
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Sun seems like a constant source of light and heat to us here on Earth.  However, we now know it is a highly variable and active star, and that our little blue planet is carving out its orbit through the Sun's extended atmosphere of million-degree plasma.  Changes on the Sun propagate out through this plasma, and they can interrupt communications, damage satellites, threaten the safety of orbiting astronauts, and disrupt ground-based power grids.  In this talk we'll take a tour through the Sun's interior and atmosphere, and we'll see how research being done at CU Boulder is helping us predict hazardous "space weather" storms.  We'll also see how future space missions and telescopes will explore how other Suns, with space weather activity even more extreme than our own, may affect the habitability of other planets.

Event Image CU Wizards: The Chemistry of the Atmosphere
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

CU Wizards: "The Chemistry of the Atmosphere"
Professor Steven Brown


Why is the sky blue? Why are sunsets orange? Professor Brown’s show brings “What’s up with air?” down to earth, highlighting unique properties of air's main ingredients: nitrogen, oxygen, argon and water. The show also demonstrates important chemistry that takes place in our atmosphere when stealthy, one-in-a-billion types of chemicals are added to the mix.

Understanding the chemistry of these less-abundant atmospheric compounds is essential to our understanding of the Earth's atmosphere. A thin, vulnerable layer of ozone high in the atmosphere protects us from harmful UV rays of sunlight. Tiny invisible particles suspended in air can change the color of the sky but also be harmful to our health. Small amounts of greenhouse gases are slowly but steadily warming the Earth.

This show demonstrates fascinating physical chemistry and introduces students K-12 to the fascinating story of the Earth’s amazing atmosphere!

Event Image CU on the Weekend - Shattered and Steaming Mars a Recipe for Life?
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Stephen Mojzsis, Professor of Geology, will discuss his new research on whether life on Mars was possible. Ancient Mars was a battered place, pelted by comets and asteroids that melted and fractured its crust and covered large areas with intense heat and shattered rocks. This may sound pretty inhospitable, but impact-induced heating may have melted near-surface ice and made hot spring systems, forming an environment where life could take hold.

Free and open to the public. No advance registration is required. Seating is limited. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to start time.

CU on the Weekend is a series of one-day community programs featuring some of CU-Boulder’s most accomplished faculty hosted by the Office for Outreach & Engagement. Visit ce.colorado.edu/weekend for more information and to sign up for event reminders.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

SPECIAL Colloquium, "Symmetry, Topology and Bacteria"
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Presented by: Ivan Smalyukh, University of Colorado Boulder

NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: DUAN G125

Abstract: Einstein introduced the “colloidal atom” paradigm, but only high-symmetry colloidal crystals could be realized within a century or so. Born developed a theory of polar ordered fluids, but only nonpolar ones could be observed. Heisenberg proposed 3D solitons as models of particles in continuous fields, but Derrick put forward a theorem that they cannot be stable. I will discuss how, addressing these long-standing challenges, we realize the lowest symmetry triclinic colloidal crystals [1] and biaxial ferromagnetic fluids [2], as well as the static 3D topological solitons within them [3]. With production aided by bacteria, such unusual materials promise a solution to the window inefficiency problem and other technological uses.

ECEE Colloquium: Organic Bioelectronic Devices
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Mixed Conduction in Organic Bioelectronic Devices 

WHO: Jonathan Rivnay of Cornell University
WHEN: 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6
WHERE: ECEE 1B32

ABSTRACT: Bioelectronic sensing and stimulation calls for the seamless bridging of biological systems (rich in ionic and biomolecular signaling) with the realm of microelectronics in order to monitor health, diagnose or treat disease. Conjugated polymers offer unique characteristics which can meet these needs: mixed ionic/electronic transport can allow for efficient signal transduction, and softer mechanical properties and synthetic functionalization can impart biocompatibility and reduced inflammatory response. Organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs) are one class of devices that utilize organic mixed conductors as the transistor channel, and have shown considerable promise as amplifying transducers due to their stability in aqueous conditions and high transconductance. These devices can be fabricated in flexible, conformable form factors for electrophysiological and biomolecular sensing applications. The majority of high performance bioelectronic devices are based on conducting polymers such as poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrenesulfonate), PEDOT:PSS. Combining structure-transport studies on such prototypical materials with device characterization, we are able to construct design rules for new materials. Film microstructure and morphology critically affect both electronic transport and the capacity for charge storage/ion penetration (and thus OECT performance), and can be tailored through processing, formulation or molecular design. By controlling materials properties, we are able to enhance device characteristics, design application-specific devices, and open new modes of operation for low power in vitro and in vivo organic bioelectronic tools.

BIO: Jonathan Rivnay received his B.Sc. from Cornell University in 2006 and his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2012 in Materials Science and Engineering. His doctoral research at Stanford focused on structure/property relations and the role of defects and disorder on charge transport in organic semiconductors. Jonathan then moved to the Department of Bioelectronics at the Centre Microélectronique de Provence (Gardanne, France), as a Marie Curie fellow, where he studied and developed polymeric electrochemical devices for clinical and diagnostic applications, with a focus on devices for neural interfacing. In 2015, Jonathan joined the Electronic Materials and Devices Laboratory at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC; Palo Alto, CA). His interests include sensor materials and hybrid systems for health monitoring and bio-interfacing.

Mysterium Tremendum: collecting curiosity. A collaborative installation by Matt Barton and Scott Johnson.

August 9 - December 17, 2016

Mysterium Tremendum: collecting curiosity is inspired by the arrival of Shakespeare’s First Folio at CU-Boulder. The installation celebrates the important roles curiosity and wonder play in the pursuit of knowledge. Mysterium Tremendum presents a “cabinet of curiosities” that brings together materials from libraries, special collections, departments and research centers at CU. Among the highlights on view are materials gathered by the artists from collections near and far alongside objects and implements that inspire the work of faculty.

The Weighted Sum Rate Maximization in MIMO Interference Networks: Minimax Lagrangian Duality and Algorithm



We take a new approach to the weighted sum-rate maximization in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) interference networks, by formulating an equivalent max-min problem. This reformulation has significant implications: the Lagrangian duality of the equivalent max-min problem provides an elegant way to establish the sum-rate duality between an interference network and its reciprocal, and more importantly, suggests a novel iterative minimax algorithm with monotonic convergence for the weighted sum-rate maximization. The design and the convergence proof of the algorithm use only general convex analysis. They apply and extend to other max-min problems with similar structure, and thus provide a general class of algorithms for such optimization problems.

Lijun Chen is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Telecommunications at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He received his Ph.D. in Control and Dynamical Systems from the California Institute of Technology in 2007, and was a Research Scientist in Computing + Mathematical Sciences at the same institute before joining the University of Colorado. His current research interests are in complex networked systems, distributed optimization and control, convex relaxation and parsimonious solutions, and game theory and its engineering applications.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Although we've always known that cities were one of the most important features of the Greek and Roman world, we've actually had very little idea about basic aspects of the urbanism of the ancient world, such as how many of these settlements there were, where they were distributed and how they changed over time, how large they were, and how many people lived in them compared to villages, hamlets, and farms. 
In this talk, CU's own John Hanson will attempt to answer some of these questions, drawing on the new research on ancient urbanism that has been put forward in his forthcoming book, and explore what it can tell us about what it was like to live in the ancient world and how it compared to the medieval and modern world.

Event Image Monitoring Climate from Space: Challenges, Opportunities, and LASP Contributions
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Earth’s climate is a manifestation of a long-term balance of energy flows. Climate change occurs when there are energy imbalances, but these accumulate on much longer time scales than regular seasonal or annual cycles, for example. Monitoring climate trends globally from space thus presents a challenge to our observational capabilities: Measurements must be accurate and instruments must maintain accuracy over long periods of time. In this talk, CU Boulder/LASP Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Peter Pilewskie will discuss how accurate our measurements need to be to detect trends in climate and to attribute them to underlying causes, the limitations of instruments currently flying and new initiatives to develop a robust climate-observing system. LASP is at the forefront of these initiatives, with novel instruments and mission concepts to meet these challenges.

Grief Support Group
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Experiencing grief can be an overwhelming experience and is often confusing and frightening. Although bereavement can be quite painful, it is not a sickness or abnormal condition. It is not something to be “cured” or “fixed.” Rather, it is part of the natural human response to losing someone close to us—the cost of loving and being loved. This group will meet once a week in a group setting for those who are recently bereaved or just beginning the grief process. Sessions include information about grief, support to determine your own needs and coping skills, and time to share experiences. Handouts will provide additional information that participants can share with others.

A licensed staff counselor will facilitate the group process, providing information and understanding in a safe, supportive, and accepting environment.

CompSci Colloquium: Behrouz Touri on Stochastic Adventures in Systems & Controls
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Stochastic Adventures in Systems and Controls 

ABSTRACT: In this talk, we visit two systems and controls problems with stochastic components. The first problem, relates to the control of a safety critical autonomous vehicle. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition reachability result for an open and bounded safety set. In particular, we show that a stochastic system is controllable if and only if the expected system is controllable. 

The second problem relates to population dynamics. We show the fragility of the central notion of evolutionarily stable strategies in population games under multiple mutation. We develop a framework for the study of population games under multiple mutations and introduce new tools for the stability analysis of such games.  

BIO:  Behrouz Touri is an Assistant Professor in the Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering Department at the University of Colorado Boulder. He received his BSc degree in Electrical Engineering from Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran in 2006, his MSc degree in Communications, Systems, Electronics from Jacobs University, Bremen, Germany in 2008, and his PhD degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011. Between 2011 and 2014, he was a postdoctoral researcher with the ECE department of the University of Illinois and Georgia Institute of Technology. His research interests include applied probability theory, distributed optimization, control and estimation, population dynamics, and evolutionary game theory. He is a recipient of AFOSR 2016 Young Investigator Award for his work on structural approach to distributed optimization.

Event Image Messages From the Sky - Defining Humanity through the Cosmos
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Since antiquity, humans have relied on the sky to define almost every aspect of daily life. Far-flung civilizations developed notions of time-keeping with intricate calendars eerily alike Mythological tales, religious holidays, and astrological divination were born from the consistency of the night sky. Fleeting events like eclipses, comets, and supernovae foretold disastrous premonitions and cosmic disorder. Together, the sky has driven societal decisions for millennia and ultimately shaped the world we live in today.

In this conversation, we will explore the history of astronomy and its roots embedded in astrology. We will look at how dependence on the sky has sculpted the evolution of human civilization across the globe by looking at how different cultures around the world interpreted the events in the sky. We will examine how a natural fear of the unknown spurred events and decisions throughout history, and, looking forward, how this fear presents itself today, from asteroids to black holes and to the ultimate human quest of space exploration and settlement.

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps. 

Open Hours:

M-Th – 8:00 am to 10:00 pm
Fri – 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $200 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $200! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Broadcast Generation


September 13, 2016 through August 23, 2017

This is the third iteration of poster exhibits produced by students in conjunction with instructor Petger Schaberg (Coordinator of Digital Literacies in the Program for Writing and Rhetoric) and Andrew Violet (graphic designer for the University Libraries). It is at once the product of a creative assignment and a kind of generational sounding. Since the first class installed their posters in 2013, subsequent classes have responded to the work of previous classes. Each year has seen a profound increase in design and rhetorical proficiency even as the formal parameters of the assignment have remained largely constant. The indications are that students themselves have engaged in a kind of iterative dialog, taking the project forward beyond the original intention of the instructor. The title, Broadcast Generation, is a student-generated identity uncovered for the first time in this iteration of the exhibit.

Exhibit - Mapping the Majestic: 100 Years of National Park Service


The University Libraries at CU Boulder are pleased to present an exhibition of maps celebrating the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary (August 25, 2016). Beginning with famous surveyors’ maps and sketches pre-dating the establishment of the first national parks, continuing through early 20th century proposed boundary maps, and ending with more recent official visitor maps, the exhibit showcases a century of government mapping. Additional tourism materials published by railroad companies, local boosters and contemporary panoramic artists, from the CU Map Library and Special Collections & Archives Department, offer a complementary perspective. The exhibit includes a genuine copper printing plate used by the U.S. Geological Survey in the early days of their operation. 

Visit the Earth Sciences & Map Library in Benson Earth Sciences on the CU Boulder campus between August 22 and December 16 to experience the wonder of our National Park system as visualized in maps.

Crucial Conversations
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Consider these questions:

Does your department suffer from taboo topics, deference, disagreement, analysis paralysis, information hoarding, office politics, or alienation?  Is your department battling slow productivity or low morale? Are you a supervisor who struggles with having difficult conversations with employees?  Then you, your team, or your department needs Crucial Conversations training.

Crucial Conversations is a two-day course that teaches skills for creating alignment and agreement by fostering open dialogue around high-stakes, emotional, or risky topics – at all levels of the organization.  By learning how to speak and be heard (and encouraging others to do the same), you’ll surface the best ideas, make the highest-quality decisions, and then act on your decisions with unity and commitment.

The CU Boulder Department of Human Resources has teamed up with VitalSmarts to offer this important course to CU Boulder employees. Based on the national best-selling book Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking when the Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations course teaches participants to speak persuasively, not abrasively; foster teamwork and better decision making; build acceptance rather than resistance; and resolve individual and group disagreements. See the attached document for a detailed description of the course.

Who Should Attend: Crucial Conversations training is appropriate for employees at all levels of the organization. Supervisors, managers, and executive leaders will find the course to be particularly relevant to their work.

Cost: $200 (The course fee includes a Crucial Conversations Toolkit, cue cards for each lesson, a Crucial Conversations model card, a copy of the New York Times bestselling book, Crucial Conversations: Tools for Talking When Stakes are High, the Crucial Conversations audio companion MP3 download, and a course completion certificate).

(If you were to take this course directly from VitalSmarts, the cost would be $1,395. But because we have certified CU Boulder trainers to deliver the course, we are able to offer it to CU Boulder employees for $200! Don’t miss this opportunity to receive this incredible training that is transforming organizations around the country!)

Grief Support Group
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM

Experiencing grief can be an overwhelming experience and is often confusing and frightening. Although bereavement can be quite painful, it is not a sickness or abnormal condition. It is not something to be “cured” or “fixed.” Rather, it is part of the natural human response to losing someone close to us—the cost of loving and being loved. This group will meet once a week in a group setting for those who are recently bereaved or just beginning the grief process. Sessions include information about grief, support to determine your own needs and coping skills, and time to share experiences. Handouts will provide additional information that participants can share with others.

A licensed staff counselor will facilitate the group process, providing information and understanding in a safe, supportive, and accepting environment.

Please email Andrew Frank (Andrew.D.Frank@Colorado.EDU) for more information or to register.
