Pathways to Equity in Higher Education: Humanities and More at UDC #equalfundingudc

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

Ronald Mason is my guest poet on “At the Edge: Think Culture” podcast 6 pm EST June 12

Poetry, power of language, and social progress for the collective will be the center of discussion in my next podcast June 12 at 6 pm EST.

Learn what I mean by “quantum flow” in the poet’s voice–this episode will have you thinking about the power of language.  Ronald Mason the spoken word artist who came to Washington DC as an educator from New Orleans returns for part three to talk about poetry, spoken word, and making culture. We will chat about the creative process and social progress in poetry. Listen in as we both share our writing, process, and ideas in challenging but fascinating times. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/at-the-edge-thinkculture/2019/06/12/quantum-flow-of-the-poets-voice-ronald-mason
