Soup and Substance to focus on housing

Posted by student Samantha Esguerra on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009


The University of Minnesota, Morris will host Soup and Substance on Thursday, December 3, 2009, at 6 p.m. in the Alumni Room in the Student Center. The event provides an open forum for members of Stevens County and the campus community to discuss issues of local, regional, national, and international importance. Everyone is invited to join the December discussion that will explore issues of housing in Stevens County and throughout Minnesota, including homelessness, the housing crisis, rental housing, and foreclosure.

Soup and Substance—named for the pairing of a delicious meal with meaningful dialogue—is open to all members of the community to share experiences and perspectives. The event provides a space in which all voices are heard, including those sometimes marginalized. People with direct topic experience facilitate the discussion.

The Office of Community Engagement sponsors Soup and Substance, a monthly campus event. For more information, contact student representative Sam Esguerra at esgue002@morris.umn.edu.
