The Big Boreas Booya!

It’s fall, and Boreas is excited to announce the 2016 Big Boreas Booya!

Booya is an upper-midwest tradition of community stew. “Booya” refers to both the event and the stew. At Boreas, we use booyas to connect our community and create a space for conversation about a stew of leadership issues. Join us for the 2016 Big Boreas Booya, and check out our schedule of semester booyas.

Big Boreas Booya!
Thursday, October 6

Location: In the outdoor area behind Learning and Environmental Sciences, next to the Gortner Ave Ramp
1954 Buford Ave, Saint Paul
(inside Learning and Environmental Sciences in case of inclement weather)

Environmental Innovators Panel 4:00 – 5:15 p.m.
Imagine an expert panel meets campfire conversation, and you’ve got a sense of what we’re going for with this part of the booya. We’re asking our panelists and participants to discuss the question, “what kind of leadership does it take to make progress on environment and sustainability challenges?” You’ll hear from panelists and have time for small group conversation.

Panelists:
Valery Forbes – Dean of the College of Biological Sciences
Eric Schwartz – Dean of the Humphrey School of Public Affairs
Scott Lanyon ­– Dean of the Graduate School

Booya is served! 5:15 – 7:00 p.m.
Meet fellow graduate student interested in leadership and making impact in the world. Connect to a community of interesting people from across campus. Enjoy tunes played by the Broken Heartland String Band, great treats thanks to our sponsors Common Roots and Wedge Community Co-Op, and, of course, try a bowl (or two!) of delicious, hot booya.

Help us get a sense of how much food we’ll need by RSVPing for the booya.
