Leadership team kicks back and relaxes—The Hess Center for Leadership and Service at Birmingham-Southern recently held its first-ever kickball game to showcase the on-the-field talents of its members and engage in some friendly competition. Cheers and high fives were prevalent as the Power Professors (Leadership Studies faculty and staff, shown in black shirts) took on the Sinister Students (Leadership Studies students, in yellow shirts) on Sunday, Nov.15, at the intramural field on campus. A great time was had by all!
Turning up the heat on climate—On what had been called “the most widespread day of political action the world has ever seen,” Birmingham-Southern's enAct organization (Students Engaged Actively in Environmental Issues) and enAct's 350 Climate Citizen Team joined more than 4,000 events around the world in 182 countries Oct. 24 for 350.org's International Day of Climate Action. 350.org coordinated the international day of action hoping to spark a global movement that will unite the public, news media, and political leaders behind the 350 goal of creating an equitable global climate treaty that lowers carbon dioxide below 350 parts per million. Shown is a crowd photo from the top of the Harbert Building on campus. More than 100 students, environmental groups, and Birmingham residents participated in the day's event, which included a documentary from Oxfam America sharing stories of women around the world affected by climate change, and a speech by Michael Churchman, director of the Alabama Environmental Council.
