At the Legacy Showcase, our Student Leadership Consultants will not only be showcasing the work they have done, but also how they have grown and developed in their core student leader competencies and reflecting on the Patriot Experience Pathways in the past year.

“In six days, the Mason LeaderShape Institute embodied what George Mason University stands for, a message that takes some students their entire college career to learn: freedom to grow and discover the numerous possibilities in the world, and learning how being a leader is something anyone can accomplish if they “have a healthy disregard for the impossible.” ~ Institute Alum

RSVP TODAY for "Right, Wrong or Different?”

Topic: “Patriotism, Nationalism and Terrorism: Identity in a Time of Polarization” with Professor Supriya Baily, PhD

Patriotism and nationalism are different aspects of national identity - the first of which refers to "attachment to one's country," and the other to "the tendency to favor one's own country over others" (Levine & Hogg, 2010). How does one determine the line between patriotism and nationalism? And do these definitions bias who is defined as a terrorist? How does the increased visibility of nationalist parties and platforms around the world affect the ability for people to live freely? Should your patriotism be questioned if you don't believe in a nationalist agenda? Does one's identification with one's own country translate into the relative devaluation or derogation of other countries and their members? What role does plurality have in a time of increased polarization?

FREE Pizza available for participants.
