ACEI Inclusive Teaching Fellows Organize Local Professional Development Initiatives across Campus in Fall 2022
In 2022-2023, 21 St. John’s faculty are serving as the inaugural cohort of the Academic Center for Equity and Inclusion (ACEI) Inclusive Teaching Fellows program. These faculty members are organizing six professional development initiatives in three colleges, reaching dozens of colleagues around the shared goal of implementing more inclusive teaching practices.
As a senior graduating in May, I believe that as a country we all need to place a greater emphasis on mental health and recognizing the early signs of a struggle so that the issue can be quickly addressed. College students often have a mindset to just push through and pretend things are okay until we see a change instead of dealing with the problem at its onset. It is okay to not be okay and to admit you are struggling or need help redirecting where you are headed in life.
