Educators and scholars face unending pressure to publish, innovate in the classroom, win grants, serve their institutions, and more. These practices are key to producing knowledge and training new thinkers, but the expectations around them can also produce unhealthy stress that threatens intellectual focus and productive dialogue. What professional mindsets and policies can we adopt to best pursue knowledge while addressing the stresses of academic life?
Join HxA for a discussion of intellectual character — curiosity, humility, empathy, and more — and the ways it can mitigate academic stress and effect cultural change. We’ll be joined by Margarita Mooney Suarez, Jason Baehr, and Lisa Jaremka for an evening spent learning how to deepen our practices as scholars, teachers, and colleagues.
