The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians is certainly intractable, but is it impossible to solve? This was one of the key questions our students confronted last week as they met with three leading players in the dispute.
The PBS documentary “Ghosts of Rwanda” has become something of a right of passage for SEGL students. Shown in preparation for our second case study of the semester, the film challenges students with difficult imagery and what many observers call the U.
One of the best parts of our flagship Ethics and Leadership class is the “Master Class.” Each cohort of SEGL students meets with dozens of guests over the course of the semester, gaining critical insights and skills from each one.
SEGL’s Spring 2012 semester is underway, and what an auspicious start! Our 22 students come from a wide array of backgrounds, and each one is clearly working to take full advantage of the SEGL experience.
Our Second Annual Homecoming Weekend was a great success! About half of our graduates, along with scores of parents, board members, friends, and current students and teachers, shared a memorable two days in DC.
This week we confront one of the most challenging topics in the world: the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We began on Monday morning with a PowerPoint overview of the conflict, in order to ensure that everyone had a basic understanding of the dispute.
This week was one of the more fulfilling case studies in SEGL’s history. After a Monday morning session that got students reflecting on differences within our community (political, racial, socio-economic, geographic, and more), we spent time on Tuesday evening’s Flex period (the evening without homework before Ethics and Leadership Wednesdays provides an extra opportunity for learning) watching and discussing the PBS documentary Ghosts of Rwanda.
