This plenary session will begin with an MC-narrated 20 minute powerpoint/video presentation followed by a panel discussion. The ppt/video images will highlight the most important events in the life of Norbert relative to the students being here at SNC (conversion, peacemaking, etc.). Panelists will then conversationally share stories of their experiences around these themes - e.g. when have you radically changed direction in your life or how have you worked to bring people together across difference? We will end with a challenge to the students to take the spirit of Norbert into their lives.

Other Goals, if applicable (these are goals not directly connected to student learning – e.g. forming group cohesion or identifying which students may be struggling to transition.)
