Words like equity and humanities, as well as phrases like “pathways for a better life” are skeletons of concepts we will unpack and discuss as part of a larger conversation about changes coming to the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) that will help faculty, students and administrative leaders bring fairness and success to every community and collective in the DC metropolitan area. This will be a roundtable discussion with UDC’s President Ronald Mason, Jr., Dr. Aparajita De, Associate Professor in the English Program, Chenequa Holland, student and blogger, and your host, Dr. Cherie Ann Turpin, Associate Professor. Join us as we discuss challenges and visions for a regenerated and renewed UDC. #equalfundingudc
