UW-Green Bay Human Development students host ‘Death Cafes’

Students of Death, Dying and Loss, a course taught by Prof. Illene Cupit (Human Development) will be hosting Death Cafes during the month of April. Each event will be led by a group of students as fulfillment of a group project assignment.

Curious what a Death Cafe is? From DeathCafes.com: “At a Death Cafe people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death. Our objective is ‘to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.’ A Death Cafe is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session.”

No preregistration is required to attend a student-led Death Cafe. Questions may be directed to Illene Cupit, cupiti@uwgb.edu. To learn more about Death Cafes, visit here.
