What are you looking forward to in your new role at Humanities Amped?
I'm looking most forward to working with everyone to create socially aware leaders and to learn from students. I'm also looking forward to being part of a movement to bring the power of stories, creativity, and equity to this community.
Why does the mission of Humanities Amped matter to you?
This mission matters because creativity and the ability to tap fearlessly into that energy can change the world. “It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have.” James Baldwin once said that. The mission of HA is fighting against these power structures.
As Program Director Dr. Grover will plan and implement initiatives like Community Care to provide social and emotional learning and restorative supports, as well as dynamic leadership opportunities, to the students we serve.
