Contemporary Conversations are a series of sessions that explore dynamic topics in our communities.

2015 Sustaining Oneself through Transitions

Professor John Riker explored what students need to do to foster self structure during the college years, why the transitions both to college and out of college tend to be traumatic (fragment self structure), and what one can do to lessen the trauma and sustain one's self through the transition out of college. The session also addressed the question of how one can locate that area in the socio/economic world which might best fulfill one's self after college.
