REBIRTH AND RENEWAL
These are resources and guidance for alumni to read the books on their own or to coordinate a book club within their community. For each club, there is a book pick, short synopsis, and a list of discussion questions. Happy reading!

FACULTY TEDx TALK
Watch CC English Professor Steven Hayward’s August 2023 TEDx Talk: “How to Binge a College Semester in One Week”. Does the length of time spent studying a subject affect comprehension and retention? Can you learn something just as well in a shorter time? Listen to Hayward’s thoughts on the matter.
In this collaboration between CC faculty, students, and others, readers learn about the topic through the lenses of history of sexuality and gender, policing and regulation, and French history.

CC Alumni Speak at Warren Village Groundbreaking Event
Lauren Watel ’07 was a featured speaker alongside U.S. Representative and CC Honorary Trustee Diana DeGette ’79, P’16,at the Aug. 30 groundbreaking event for the third location of Warren Village in Denver, an affordable housing community focused on helping low-income, single-parent families make the journey from poverty to self-sufficiency. Watel and Rep. DeGette took part in the groundbreaking due to the numerous avenues and funding partners that have worked together to fund this affordable housing building for unhoused single parents. Rep. DeGette advocated for the procurement of federal funds, and The Schlessman Family Foundation, of which Watel is President, supported the project with a capital grant.
Warren Village is led by Executive Director Ethan Hemming ’92, who has been working to advance and expand the organization’s mission to empower single-parent families toward self-sufficiency.
