The Day of Common Learning is an annual all-day event in which the University suspends classes and gathers the community together to explore a significant idea or interest. This year's event takes place on Wednesday, October 22, and the theme is "The Promise and Perils of Power: Fostering Human Flourishing in a Broken World."
The day begins with a public keynote address at 10 a.m. in Royal Brougham Pavilion titled “The Good News About Power,” presented by Andy Crouch, executive editor of Christianity Today. He is the author of Playing God: Redeeming the Gift of Power and Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling. In the afternoon, the “common” part of our day occurs. Faculty, staff, and students will facilitate presentations and discussions around the theme of power.
Parents and other members of the Seattle community are welcome to attend the morning and afternoon sessions. More information will be available on the SPU Center for Scholarship and Faculty Development website in early October.
