Galveston College Student Services to present February seminars on healthy relationships and privilege

The Galveston College Student Services division will present two Success Seminars in February in the Abe and Annie Seibel Foundation Wing-West on the Galveston College campus, 4015 Avenue Q, Galveston, Texas.

On Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, at 3 p.m., there will be a session on “Healthy Relationships,” which will focus on strategies for creating positive relationships.

This interactive, experiential session will explore what a healthy relationship looks and feels like, why it matters, and how to increase one’s ability to seek and maintain healthy relationships.

On Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 3 p.m., there will be a seminar entitled “What is Privilege? The Privilege Walk,” which is an exercise that encourages participants to become aware of their personal privilege.

The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate how identifiers such as race, gender, socioeconomic status, mental/ physical, religion, ability, sexual orientation and age affected their personal privilege and the rights of members of their community.
