Empathy in Action: Building an Inclusive Community at Pace
May 23–24, 2023 | 9:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
For our 21st annual Institute on Teaching and Learning (ITL), the Faculty Center joined forces with Student Success and Student Affairs to create the inaugural joint conference: Empathy in Action: Building an Inclusive Community at Pace. This 2-day, virtual conference for faculty and staff focused on building an inclusive community at Pace by turning empathy into action. Our program featured action-oriented presentations from faculty, staff, and students that addressed topics such as culturally responsive teaching and advising, self-care, cross-divisional and interdisciplinary collaboration, retention, neurodiversity, assessment, and mental health and well-being. With over 20 sessions, and over 50 speakers, the conference created an opportunity to discuss timely and important themes that guide our work as we move forward as a community.
