Integrated Learning at St. Catherine University is a multidimensional expression of an active liberal arts pedagogy. Located at the intersection of creative energy and critical reflection, the Integrated Learning Series is one way we partner academics with activism, the paper with the performance, and the campus with the community. It is the array of courses, activities, speakers, events, performances, and exhibitions that coalesce into our ways of knowing. The Integrated Learning Series is the web that binds our learning experiences together and the narratives that connect our collective community.
Spring 2021 Series — When Women Lead: Courage, Confidence, Collaboration
The Integrated Learning Series Committee invites you to our spring semester series. We will spend each Tuesday evening from 7-8pm discussing conditions for, and the implications of, women’s leadership. We will hear from local and national women leaders — some of whom are St. Kate' graduates, as well as have special panels around career management strategies for burgeoning leaders. We want to define and celebrate the different types of leadership, delineate the qualities and attributes that must be fostered in good leaders, and examine what support structures need to be in place for successful leadership. Our guests are intergenerational, from a variety of disciplines and sectors, and will speak to our theme.
Each first Tuesday in February, March, and April the Integrated Learning Series presents career conversations as we recognize financial sustainability is an important part of fostering women’s leadership. These sessions will be moderated by May Thao-Schuck, Radzinski Vice President of Career & Professional Development and Pa Der Vang, Alberta Huber, CSJ Endowed Chair in the Liberal Arts and Director of the Evaleen Neufeld Initiative in the Liberal Arts.
