  • Bake Sale Benefiting Ronald McDonald House (+)

    9:00 AM - 6:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Alfred's Cafe



    Join us for a bake sale benefiting Ronald McDonald House (RMHC-CNI), whose mission is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion and a sense of community. RMHC-CNI keeps families of hospitalized children together in a ‘home away from home’.

    Ronald McDonald Houses provide a ‘home away from home’ to keep families together. The Houses allow families to eat, sleep and find the emotional support they need - just blocks from where their child is being treated. This year they provided over 30,000 nights to families, offering them care and comfort during their hours of greatest need. While a donation of $10 per night is suggested, no family is ever turned away if they are unable to pay.

  • Social Exclusion Simulation (+)

    6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    Chicago Campus



    The Social Exclusion Simulation is a group experiential learning tool for increasing understanding of complex systems and how the structural barriers that comprise them work to block access to key rights, resources and opportunities for some members of society, rendering them “socially excluded.”

    2.5 C.E.U.’s will be offered to psychologists, counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and interested non-psychologists. Please indicate this on your reservation request.

    Participants include students, faculty and staff of the Adler School, members of the greater Chicagoland community, anyone interested in learning more about social exclusion. Participants adopt authentic Chicago-based case histories of formerly incarcerated women and are tasked with re-entering society – finding a place to live, a job, healthcare and other necessities – in the face of structural and systemic barriers.

    Participant outcomes include:

    • An increased understanding of what structural and systemic barriers are and how they work to undermine opportunity and access.
    • Increased appreciation of practical limits of personal responsibility, agency, and choice.
    • Increased motivation to adopt attitudinal and behavioral changes in pursuit of social change.
    • Increased empathy for other marginalized groups.
    • Apprehend the shock and disappointment about roadblocks of re-entry.

    To register and for more information about the Social Exclusion Simulation, contact the Institute on Social Exclusion at ISE@adler.edu.
