Academic Mamas Book Circle: To Have and To Hold

Do you find it difficult balancing all of your varied roles? Join Dr. Jennifer Weaver (Associate Professor in the department of Psychological Science), and Elizabeth Barnes (SL Faculty Associate for the CTL and Lecturer in the English Department) to meet other Academic Mamas struggling to find balance and joy. The goal of the book circle is to form a community of mothers to support one another in the complicated process of being a professional and a parent. Please join us on the last Tuesday of each month from 12:00-12:45 (via Zoom) to read and discuss:  To Have And To Hold Motherhood, Marriage, and the Modern Dilemma By Molly Millwood, PhD.

What Does it Mean to be White

Due to complications from COVID-19, BUILD Program book circles for Robin DiAngelo’s, What Does it Mean to be White? Developing White Racial Identity have been placed on haitus. In order to support continuing education virtually, a list of resources for anyone interested in learning more about race, racism, and white supremacy can be requested. This list is meant to be a starting point, and does not account for every resource related to these topics.

Anyone who is Boise State affiliated can request access to the document, “Virtual Learning: Unpacking Race, Racism, and White Supremacy”. Fill out this form with your email address and the BUILD Program will send you the document within two business days.
