For all of us, 2020 has been a year of unexpected upheaval, enduring privation, and continuous challenge. Each of us has accumulated a unique set of experiences, scars, coping strategies, victories and defeats.

We invite you to virtually share your relevant research, reflections, policy formulations, poetry, short stories, photography, art work, musical or dramatic compositions. Show us how you have reacted
to (or will proactively act toward) the great contemporary issues: COVID-19, BLM, lockdown, divisiveness.

All CHC stakeholders (students, faculty, staff, alum, community) are invited to share their creativity in whatever form they choose. For more details contact
