    WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE HAMLINE UNIVERISTY NCORE NETWORK?
    There is so much division in society today – race, religion, gender, class, sexual orientation, ethnicity. It seems like we have lost that it means to be a pluralistic country. Hamline is a community where positive dialogue can take place, where we can learn and celebrate differences, and work together for the common good. The Hamline community can and should be model of how we can recognize the “…isms,” discuss them, and take action to ensure fairness and equality.

    I grew up and was affected by the civil rights movement, have searched for solutions to poverty during my career, and led human rights efforts as an elected official. One of my reasons for participating in the NCORE team is to learn how to connect the past with the future. I want to answer, what inspires young adults to work for social justice and how do baby boomers join hands with the young to creative a more justice society.

    WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NCORE MEMORY or SESSION?
    My favorite memory was the nightly reflections with the Hamline team. My favorite session was the keynote address from Jeff Chang. I also loved running along the Hudson River each morning and seeing the World Trade Center rising.

    WHAT DID YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE?
     In higher education, there are students, faculty an staff who have the fire to address racism and other “isms.” The spirit of the ’60 Civil Rights Movement is alive in new faces, songs, writers and activists. I left New York with some practical ideas, may questions and excitement about the possibilities for the Hamline team this year.

     Idid, at times, feel like we were in an echo chamber – like-minded people sharing ideas and opinions. That’s needed at times, but we should desire to expand the discussions, engage more people, and challenge each other..

    WHAT ARE YOUR PERSONAL GOALS FOR THIS ACADEMIC YEAR?
    My goal is to be an asset to the Hamline NCORE team. I would like to find ways to engage more graduate school faculty and students int eh discussions, and bring NCORE into my classroom
