Provost’s Discovery Themes Lecturer Program: Tressie McMillan Cottom

January 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Virtual

Tressie McMillan Cottom is an award-winning author, researcher, educator, and cultural critic whose work has been recognized nationally and internationally for the urgency and depth of her incisive critical analysis of technology, higher education, class, race, and gender. She was recently named a 2020 MacArthur Fellow. The foundation for McMillan Cottom's first book, Lower Ed: The Troubling Rise of For-Profit Colleges in the New Economy, was formed by dissertation research for her doctorate from Emory University's Laney Graduate School. In Lower Ed, she questions the fundamental narrative of American education policy. In 2019, McMillan Cottom released Thick: and Other Essays. The collection has been described as “essential,” and the Chicago Tribune calls her, “the author you need to read now.” Thick was the winner of the Brooklyn Public Library Literary Prize and was a finalist for the 2019 National Book Award.

Virtual

Presented by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health: Institutional and systemic racism are a direct result of laws, policies, and practices.

The intensive examines historic and contemporary manifestations of institutional and systemic inequities.

ADVANCING EQUITY THROUGH PUBLICLY ENGAGED SCHOLARSHIP: TRANSFORMING FACULTY REWARD POLICIES & PRACTICES

September 21, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
Virtual

ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM To serve all members of our society, our colleges and universities must put Equity at the center of their work, not just as a desired outcome, but also as integral to the process of education - how we do what we do. To serve their public purpose, our higher education institutions must also commit deeply to Civic and Community Engagement in teaching and research.  Our faculty reward systems (including promotion, tenure or long-term contracts for non-tenure-track faculty, and post-tenure review) shape whom we attract, support, and retain as faculty.  This symposium will explore how faculty reward systems can be structured to support both of these critical and intersecting themes in higher education--Equity and Public Engagement.  How might we transform the culture, policies and practices of our reward systems to recruit and retain the faculty we need?  Sessions throughout the day will begin to address these questions and will include breakout sessions targeted at faculty and campus executives…
