Tag Archives: Buddhist Chaplaincy Program at University of the West

The Buddhist Chaplaincy Program at University of the West recently launched “Meet UWest” — a new online video series that features students, staff, and faculty sharing thoughts and conversation. See the videos at: http://www.youtube.com/uwestchaplaincy. ”

Dean Bhagat had mentioned that he’d wanted us all to think more about using social networking sites to promote the university and our respective programs, and I was inspired by NPR’s StoryCorps to kickstart something that would do that as well as encourage listening and storytelling on campus,” says Rev. Danny Fisher, Coordinator of the Buddhist Chaplaincy Program. “We’ve got such a special community here at UWest–lots of unique individuals with interesting insights and tales to tell–so this video project seemed like a good idea.” Fisher hopes that the videos will be helpful, and that the campus community will contribute to the making of further videos. “If there’s something you’ve always wanted to ask someone else on campus, and you’re both willing to go on film, come see me!”
