Building pathways to flourishing in a culture of belonging

I work with participants to focus on ways to support human flourishing (students, staff and faculty) and build a sense of belonging for all. I explore the art and science of flourishing and belonging, as well as the personal and organizational impact of human flourishing and belonging.

Teaching for student learning in diverse college classrooms.

Explore promising teaching practices to optimize all student learning in classrooms where students come from different cultural and racial backgrounds. I share evidence to support the discussed practices, and engage participants in exploring their own ways of teaching in diverse college classrooms.
