#Repost @iieglobal "Helen Eugenie Moore Anderson, known as Eugenie, accomplished not only one, but several 'historic firsts' for women within the field of U.S. international affairs." [Text and photos via the @USNatArchives Blog.]
In 1937, she travelled to Germany. "She later recalled in an interview seeing 'a group of five-year-old boys goose stepping in lock step' and how that sight 'sickened and frightened her.' This visit changed her outlook on the world, her country’s place within it and set her upon the path of public service.
Eugenie Anderson officially became the first female U.S. ambassador upon her appointment by President Harry S. Truman to lead the embassy at Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1949. Her success led to a second appointment in 1962, when President John F. Kennedy appointed her as the Minister to Bulgaria, thus becoming the first woman to serve behind the 'Iron Curtain.”

🎓 From CALmatters higher education reporter Felicia Mello: "At most University of California campuses, Latinos comprise less than 10 percent of instructors—in a state where Latinos make up nearly a quarter of UC undergrads and more than half of graduates from public high schools.
Latinos are similarly underrepresented among California State University and community college faculty, according to a report on campus diversity released last week by the Campaign for College Opportunity, an organization promoting college access for Californians.
Although other ethnic groups are also disproportionately absent among faculty, the underrepresentation of Latinos is especially striking given their demographic dominance in California."

An anonymous academic surveyed their students at university across all levels to find out what they were doing well and how to improve in other aspects.
The survey of 1,000 students revealed an underlying question as to why lecturers didn’t show more humanity. Qualities like kindness, integrity and understanding appeared to be missing when lecturers interacted with students.
Though a softer approach can seem like pandering and spoon-feeding, students actually pointed out that an understanding of different experiences, backgrounds and commitments was what they were keen on.
They didn’t want to be treated like a homogenous group.
The anonymous academic explained that sometimes students can be at the receiving end of irritation and contempt, when all they want to be is encouraged and inspired. Pressures that academic staff may face on the business side of working in a university shouldn’t be trickled down into the classroom and affect students.
Other points that students raised included a lack of free printing, better IT systems, better organisation and timetabling of lectures, 24-hour library access, and so on.
What are your thoughts? Do you think academics should incorporate elements of compassion within their teaching? Is there a responsibility to show an understanding to students and inspire them within their educational journey?
#solplaatjeuniversity has mosaic on the walls - perfect for photoshoots. There is something refreshing about not being confronted by the neoclassical architectural styles with grand columns and uncomfortable upholding archetypical ideas of Western, white male intellect. This university is still expanding in aesthetic, curriculum and identity. So much space for co-creations, reimagining and experimenting with higher education. .
Our National Fellowships 101 workshop will give you valuable information on opportunities that are available to you and explain how to apply. Attend, and you could be on your way to an experience of a lifetime.
Start your week with a dose of inspiration! Most of us at some point have heard the timeless adage, "It takes a village to raise a child." Well, Taejonae McKenzie's story is a beautiful embodiment of this saying. Link to video on bio! ☝️
Taejonae graduated from Lincoln High School in Tacoma, Washington, and is now a senior at the University of Washington where she is earning a Bachelors in Education, Community, and Organizations. She’s also at the center of the second episode of "First Gen Grads: Change Starts With Your Story," a mini-documentary series dedicated to exploring the narratives of six first-generation college students from across the Puget Sound region in Washington.
Collaborating with Taejonae over the last couple of months to make this project possible has been an incredible experience. She is a thoughtful, committed, and driven leader with a vision to create a more inclusive and equitable education system. I know our entire teams at Storytellers for Change and Ambassador Stories are honored to have had the opportunity to witness and share part of her story. You will want to make sure to follow this rising education leader, community advocate, and Storyteller for Change!

That moment of procrastination when you finally realize your not really procrastinating to avoid work just avoiding doing work that you’re going to need to toss out because your idea was garbage and perhaps you should change your approach. Yup, that’s me now. I guess I need to figure out a new direction for the course I’m working on. Going well overall and I’ve been trying to listen to my procrastination more this year. It’s usually telling me that what I’m doing (or rather what I’m avoiding) is garbage and should be re-imagined.
Year 13 student Junita Sirait has won an unconditional offer to Wellesley College. It is a fantastic achievement, and Junita, as a Pestalozzi scholarship student, has overcome many odds and worked incredibly hard to be afforded this opportunity. One of the most prestigious and highly respected institutions of higher education in the world, Wellesley is widely acknowledged as the USA’s top university for women, notable alumnae include Madeleine Albright and Hilary Clinton. Congratulations Junita, a truly wonderful accomplishment.
