You are Cordially Invited to our Grand Opening Gala - October 21st, 2017

RSVP and be a part of this very important birth. Not only will you experience a joyful celebration, you will be a part of the very foundation of Fox Institute. Our evening program at the historic Boulderado includes messages of hope through reinvention of work and education, a three-course meal, a sampling of silent auction items and dancing to Mass Hipsteria (an eleven-piece band that includes UCS alumni soloist David Sharp, DMin). Your presence and support are greatly appreciated.

When you register you will be given the opportunity to identify your level of support as Stepping Stone, Boulder, Flatirons or Rocky Mountains. All those levels of patronage help us to Build Hope for the Future!

Even If you cannot attend in person, RSVP and show your support by making a donation and/or purchasing a ticket that can be donated.

OPEN HOUSE

Get to know us! During the day on Saturday, stop by our classrooms at 1128 Pine Street (the south entrance of First Congregational Church of Boulder) directly across the street from the Hotel Boulderado. Faculty will be present to share a taste of the FICS pedagogy – from seminar-like panel discussions to short art-as-meditation experientials. Our staff will be present to answer questions and to give you a tour of the classrooms and newly remodeled Carriage House.

The FICS Pedagogy

Matthew Fox, PhD

On Shabbat, October 20th and on Sunday, October 22nd, many of the professors are volunteering to participate in and/or lead worship in local synagogues and churches. Fox Institute is commencing with a clear intention to be a part of the wider community, to be a resource, and to be co-creators of compassionate action.

Whether a UCS/Wisdom alumnus or a new student, plan to take your first FICS course in October and include the celebration as part of your stay. Apply Now to be a student and to register for classes.

If you are a UCS DMin graduate and will be here for the weekend, if you would like to volunteer to be on the weekend speaker’s bureau or to help with weekend activities, please contact our Director of Outreach and Communication, Kip Hubbard, at khubbard@foxinstitute-cs.org.
