Shape the Agora
We believe in valuing how our campus, community and world treat and reflect one another. In a future where technology is a key driver, the need to focus on our human interactions is ever more necessary. To achieve our best interactions, we must become a model of the community and citizen of the future, building bridges and breaking boundaries when necessary. In this activity, invoking the ancient Greek agora as a metaphor is useful. As it did in ancient times, agora encourages us to have dialogue and debate. We are invited to work together to tackle difficult issues. Redeployed for modern times, agora calls us to embrace our cultures, refine how we engage with each other, and concentrate on well-being and healthy growth. It means putting people at the center of our decisions and prioritizing diversity of thought, mind and background.
Goal: Build a respectful, diverse and effective university community.
Pathway Leaders serve two roles: they advise the provost to advance the work of the pathway, and they serve as liaisons to the university community.
Pathway Leaders for Pathway 4 are: Carolyn Gregory, VP for human resources, Robert Solomon, VP for the Office for Inclusion, Diversity and Equal Opportunity and Megan Holmes, associate professor and founding director for the Center on Trauma and Adversity in the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences.
