BIPOC Faculty Luncheon

Are you an educator of color? Come to the BIOPOC Faculty Luncheon to connect, share, and learn from others in a supportive environment. We hope to explore self-care as an essential component of the teaching life within a network that cares about the successful navigation of the classroom, your institution, and academic career. Esteemed Womanist Ethicist Dr. Emilie Townes will be our featured speaker. She will share about self-care from the “rear view.” Come hear Dr. Townes offer wisdom on self-care that takes her entire teaching and scholarly career into perspective.
