Ambassadors of Love
 

Three weeks ago, during a Center for Humanitarian Engagement (CHE) video teleconference staff meeting, I challenged our team to come up with a cohesive solution to address the feelings of fear and uncertainty that has spread throughout our global community during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
 
Since that meeting, the team’s response resulted in the creation of five, brand-new programs to be fully led by Walla Walla University students. Their objective is simple, to spread and share the love of Jesus with others.
 
I am proud of our team’s efforts and encourage you to join a community or a cause in which you too can contribute and help spread the love of Jesus with others during these odd and challenging times.

To learn more about these new CHE programs and efforts, visit our CHE Volunteer Page here.  

Blessings,

E. David Lopez

CHE has launched a brand-new podcast called "The Global Campus." It is currently available on Spotify and Google Podcast. Soon, it will also be available on Apple iTunes.

The mission of The Global Campus podcast is to create a forum during the COVID-19 pandemic, for students, staff, faculty, and friends of WWU to share encouragement and promote generosity in service. Listen in with host Chad Nelson, as he has friendly and topical discussions about the lives and stories of WWU students and faculty as we face the uncertainty together.
