Sept. 17-Nov. 19: ‘Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance’ fall book study

Grit: The Power of Passion and Perserverence is the topic of the fall book study. It will take place Monday, Sept. 17 through Monday, Nov. 19, at various times and locations.

Join us as we explore the concept of “grit!”

Resilience, stamina, a determination to continue against all odds – we have all heard how important this is to achieving our goals, whether personal or professional. But how do we do it?

Angela Duckworth’s Grit, a longtime New York bestseller, is a master class in the components of grit: the combination of passion and perseverance that can take a life from good to great to exceptional. From studies of spelling bees champions to Olympic athletes to her own life as a researcher and mother, Duckworth takes the reader through a fascinating landscape of experiments and experiences, unlocking the psychological secrets of success.

This book study will examine the role of  “grit”and what is involved in “gritty” habits. And perhaps most importantly, how we can build a culture of “grit” here at UND.

Sessions will be facilitated by Chelsea Lupien, Gail Ingwalson, Anne Kelsch, Anna Kinney, Adrienne Salentiny, Carrie Herrig, and Morgan Matson.  Books will be provided to participants.
