  • Emotional Intelligence Symposium

On Tuesday, October 30, the Counseling and Wellness Center and the Office of Career Services launches its first Emotional Intelligence Symposium for first-year students to introduce them to key skills needed for success in college and in life.

The Symposium will begin with a keynote address by Professor of Psychology Nava R. Silton, Ph.D. In her keynote, So You Want to Be Successful?, Silton will introduce students to the components of emotional intelligence and how they link to metrics of success.

Following her address, students will engage in workshops on various topics ranging from the personality types, coping strategies for students of color in predominantly white institutions, cultivating happiness, moderating stress, being emotionally aware in a professional setting, and how to advocate for one’s needs.

The Symposium is a new addition to the suite of programming that Marymount Manhattan offers first-year students to foster successful transition from high school to college in NYC. The Symposium is part of MMC 101, a first-year course designed to introduce students to the Colleges resources.
