The Austin American Statesman hosted One Day University here in Austin yesterday. It was a great day of learning and sharing with four award-winning professors. Psychology, Astronomy, History, Politics, and Music were just some of the topics at this season’s event. Students and professors engaged in healthy discourse and shared learning.
Why Some People Are Resilient, and Others Are Not was presented by Dr. Andrew Shatté of University of Arizona. Here Dr. Shatté shared how habits in how we think have an enormous impact on resilience.
This was followed by Dr. David Helfand’s (Columbia University) course on What We Know About the Universe (and What We Don’t Know). This was a remarkable discussion of Astronomy.
Lastly The Rise and Decline of the American Presidency was presented by the University of Texas’s Jeremi Suri. This lecture focused on the nature of government bureaucracy, the range of American challenges and commitments, and the development of the modern media.
Additionally students were eligible to win a Lexus RC350 that was on display throughout the day.
Pre-enroll for next session is already off and running! The event is scheduled for April 24, 2016 from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Discounted tickets are available for a short time for early signups!
This event would not be possible without the planning expertise of the Statesman staff and our generous sponsor, Lexus of Austin.
