Hosted by Jennifer Abe, Loyola Marymount University
In Episode 1 of The Intersection, “On the Challenge and Promise of Being a Whole Person in Higher Education,” Kathleen Fitzpatrick, director of digital humanities and English professor at Michigan State University, and Ryan Duns, a Jesuit priest and theologian at Marquette University, reflect together about obstacles and possibilities related to being whole persons in higher education.
How do academic culture and institutional structures hinder people from becoming whole? What practices can promote greater alignment between intellectual work and the affective experiences that bring meaning to our lives? And what conditions can help everyone who works in higher education–faculty, staff, and administrators–to be more fulfilled in their work together?
