All College Hour Speaker Series: Peter Granger @ MacVittie College Union Ballroom
Nov 7 @ 2:30 pm – 3:45 pm

All-College Hour is 2:30 -3:45 PM on Wednesdays.

9/26/2018 – Peter Granger
Topic: Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and College Students

Peter Granger is a retired Army officer

Hi, my name is Pete and I’m here to have a discussion with you about post-traumatic stress disorder and college students.

Let me start out by saying I am not a psychiatrist, a psychologist, or a licensed mental health provider. Heck, I’ve never even done extensive research into PTSD. I am up here to promote a discussion with all of you because I am a former college student who completed two degrees while living with PTSD. I haven’t studied the subject of PTSD and college students. I’ve lived it.

The mission of SUNY Geneseo is to combine a rigorous curriculum and a rich co-curricular life in order to create a learning-centered environment. It is this marriage of academics and campus life that has propelled Geneseo to be a nationally-recognized public liberal arts college.

The All-College Hour Speaker Series supports the College mission and embodies the principles of The Bringing Theory to Practice Project. The aim of the series is to provide integrative opportunities for the campus community to come together to engage in learning that promotes cognitive, emotional, and civic development. The topics of the series are intended to challenge thinking, spur self-reflection, encourage civil discourse, and promote social responsibility. The series is sponsored by Student and Campus Life. All sessions take place during the All-College Hour (2:30-3:45 PM).
