13th Annual Women of Spirit and Action (WSA) Award Ceremony

9:00 – 10:30 am
Lincoln Park Student Center, Room 120
The DePaul Women’s Network and the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity call upon all members of the DePaul community to recognize female faculty, staff and students who truly exemplify the Vincentian leadership embodied by St. Louise. Though the award honors DePaul women, we encourage all members of our university community (men and women, faculty, staff, and students) to recognize an honoree for this award.
In addition, the members of DWN enthusiastically invite you to join us at the 2017 St Louise de Marillac Women of Spirit and Action Awards Ceremony. We’ll come together for breakfast, a keynote speaker, and a celebration of the honorees.
Recognize a woman of spirit and action today! Submissions accepted through October 25.
Register for the free event today! Registration is open until October 30.
If you have questions about nominations or event registration, please email Kate Lower, DNW’s Director of Service & Outreach, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Race and Social Identity in the Classroom
2017 Fall Forum on Teaching and Learning
Friday, October 20, 2017
9:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Lincoln Park Student Center 120AB
Each year, the Fall forum brings together members from across the university for a day focused on exploring issues related to teaching and learning. This year’s theme, “Race and Social Identity in the Classroom,” is especially important given our university’s commitment to the education of a diverse student body and in light of recent events, such as the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Terrell Strayhorn, PhD, will serve as this year’s keynote speaker and will also facilitate an hour-long workshop after lunch. Strayhorn is the author of 10 books and over 200 book chapters, journal articles, and other scholarly publications. His most recognized book College Students’ Sense of Belonging: A Key to Educational Success, available as an eBook from the DePaul University Library. He has given invited keynotes and lectures at more than 500 universities and conferences across the globe.
Participants are encouraged to attend the entire event but are welcome to come and go as their schedule allows.
