First day back–old office packed up, key acquired, meetings attended–big thanks to Helene, Ada, Aparajita, William, Stacy, and Gregory for helping me get things sorted out today! Love my new office!
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

Check out my new podcast going live tonight with my own dean Dr. April Massey!!! We will talk about women making moves in higher education, as well as building leadership opportunities for faculty and students.
April Massey, Ph.D., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of the District of Columbia, has earned degrees from The Ohio State University, the
University of Cincinnati, and Howard University. A speech-language pathologist by profession, she has nearly 20 years of administrative experience and has served in the
capacity of dean for five years. Dr. Massey uses her disciplinary training to consider the liberal arts and
careerist needs of students and the research, teaching, and leadership interests of faculty. With newly launched initiatives in signature work, women’s leadership, faculty development, STEM pipeline, faculty learning hubs, and scholarship of
practice, her work emphasizes learning by doing and lived experience as content and context for teaching and learning.
