Objectives for our time together:

     Meet up for fellowship and getting to know each other better in person and also with those joining virtually

 Engaging in cultural immersive experiences or rituals together; have folks from different cultural origins lead us in participating in an experience or ritual from their culture

 Share teaching and educational resources to help build more diverse resources for CPE

 Share stories of CoP members’ experiences as CPE students in the US– Learning from these to change our practice in N. America

 Learn from each other’s practices to create/engender a CPE model that is most conducive for learning for non-dominant students

 Fun exploration of “What if Anton Boisen had been from another country? What would CPE be like?
