Trees, sculpture and busy sidewalk covered in snow.The past two years have been challenging physically and emotionally. Many Metropolitan State University of Denver employees and community members have lost loved ones during this time and have expressed the need to create an outlet for these feelings.  

As announced in December, a group of employees has created Circle of Solace, a space for fellow faculty and staff members to gather and learn about and understand the grief process. The group officially kicks off this spring, a season associated with growth and a fitting time to discuss loss and also focus on healing and renewal.

The first meeting will be held remotely through Teams on Feb. 11 from 10-11 a.m. Please follow this Teams live event link to join.

All sessions are open door, and attendees are invited to join as they can.
