Listen to Dean Heather Lattimer on KQED

Our very own Lurie College Dean, Heather Lattimer is on KQED to talk about Teaching Tough Subjects!! We are so proud!

“When I was growing up, my father and I engaged in vigorous debates around the dinner table, often taking polar opposite positions on local and national issues. Sometimes those discussions led me to re-think my beliefs. Other times they reaffirmed them. Always they pushed me to learn and grow. And they strengthened the love and respect that my father and I felt for one another.”

Lurie College Faculty Publishes Opinion Piece

Congratulations to Counselor Education department faculty Kyoung Mi Choi, who recently published “The Invisibility of International LGBTQ+ Students on U.S. Campuses” on Visible Magazine.

“Based on my personal and professional experiences, I offer the following suggestions for faculty and staff to support international LGBTQ+ students on campuses:

Become familiar with common issues of international LGBTQ+ individuals, including fear of consequences after returning home, unfamiliarity with LGBTQ+ terminology, difficulties in developing intimate relationships, lack of knowledge of resources, and legal issues.

Be knowledgeable about LGBTQ+ movements and advocacy activities around the globe. Create trust and build allyship with international students and gently invite them to discuss complex and sensitive topics by asking questions like, “What are the norms around gender and sexuality in your home country?” or “What kinds of culture clashes or new ideas might they be exposed to on campus?”

Lastly, be an advocate for international LGBTQ+ students. Develop comprehensive cultural competency training that increases the awareness of the unique needs of international LGBTQ+ students and make inclusive campus policies to protect those students legally and culturally while studying in U.S. higher education.”

Watch our Institute for Emancipatory Education Speaker Series: Dr. David Stovall

Watch out Institute for Emancipatory Education speaker series! Dr. David Stovall talks about the constructs of Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Abolition to consider emancipatory education. If we are trying to create an education that liberates those who experience white supremacy in the form of isolation, marginalization, and dehumanization, we must be clear about the current socio-political moment. We must be willing to take away lessons of history to build a praxis (action and reflection in the world in order to change it) centered on the needs of our communities. Any struggle for change, time, space, and will is central moving forward.

Lurie College Faculty Publishes Advocacy Piece

Shoutout to Child and Adolescent Development faculty Robert Marx, who published “Collective Memory for Queer and Trans Liberation” in Visible Magazine!

“Collective memory and intergenerational connection are the healing antidote to the forces of capitalism, White supremacy, and heteropatriarchy that aim to keep us too busy and downtrodden to see our own capacity to upend systems that work for only a very few. Just as I learned about my grandmother’s memories and ways of navigating oppression, so too does learning the ways of life of our queer and trans ancestors offer us a way to radically alter the material conditions which govern our lives and limit us.”
