VP of DEI: Reflections on Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day

2022-05-12T19:14:48-07:00

Dear Fielding Community, I am writing to commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day. As we journey through life, we meet people who have lived through extraordinary circumstances. It is hard to imagine how individuals not only survive instances of deep trauma but manage to find a way to live in and with a world that betrayed them at some point in their life. It is harder still when the extraordinary circumstance involves unspeakable inhumane acts. The betrayal becomes a moral betrayal against life itself – the deepest cut of all. As an undergraduate college student, I was blessed to learn from [...]

As Lake Powell’s water level continues to plummet, native plant species and waterfalls have awakened from a watery slumber. Scientists are eagerly studying Glen Canyon’s seemingly swift recovery, as it is just one example of nature’s resilience. Since the pandemic, and as people sheltered at home, that resiliency has [...]

by Tracy N. Long, Ph.D. Over the last two years, more people have discovered what many already knew, the healing power of experiencing nature in beautiful outdoor spaces. We were encouraged to go outside, breath fresh air, and get some exercise during the pandemic. We heard that enjoying the natural world was good for our physical and psychological health.
