Body Image & Eating Disorders Prevention Speaker Visiting Campus

Dr. Michael Levine, an internationally-recognized expert on body image and eating disorders prevention, will be on campus Monday, Oct. 14 – Wednesday, Oct. 16. There are two opportunities to engage with Dr. Levine that may be of interest to faculty. Please join us for one or both events!

On Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Stetson Room, Dr. Levine will give a presentation titled, “Be the changes you wish to see in the culture:” 10 Principles for Becoming a Bolder Model of Eating Disorder Prevention. The presentation will include practical strategies for empowering ourselves and others to build a body-positive community and resist unhealthy cultural messages about appearance. This event is free and open to the public, and Cultural Credit is available for students.

OnĀ Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Allen Hall Auditorium, there will be a Meet-and-Greet Reception with Dr. Levine. Dr. Levine will take some time to talk about his scholarly program at Kenyon College (where he is now Professor Emeritus), including the involvement of undergraduate students in his work, and there will be ample time for questions and conversation.

Dr. Levine’s visit is sponsored by the Artists & Lecturers Committee, the Gender Studies Program, Campus Life and Student Success, and the Brown Center for Faculty Innovation and Excellence.
