SPACE: Arts and Science Certificate
For more than a decade now, Dawson students from across the disciplines have engaged the community through their contributions to SPACE venues, from our website to talks to readings to exhibitions to conferences. The opportunity for this kind of public engagement has proved motivating and enriching for students, inspiring them to push towards greater depth and/or breadth as well as professionalism in their work. Starting in 2021/2022, students will also be able to receive official validation for their active engagement in SPACE through the new SPACE: Arts and Sciences Certificate. Learn More…

In the words of the poet Mary Oliver, there is a “light at the center of every cell”, a “story of endless good fortune”, that generally keeps us “flowing forward happily”.
