Power of Place Lecture Series 2018-19

Power of Place

For 125 years, we’ve educated generations to lead lives of utility, meaning, service, and beauty – lives that matter. The Power of Place is a series of events celebrating Warren Wilson College’s history with a focus on what it means to be located physically, ecologically, and culturally within the overlapping communities and territories that make up this special place.
