FAHE to Hold Conference June 20-23
April 19, 2013
The Friends Association for Higher Education will hold a conference June 20-23 at Malone University, in Canton, Ohio, with the theme Holistic Education: To What End?
FAHE gathers each June at a college with Quaker roots to consider a theme that will inform, refresh and inspire attendees. It is designed for faculty and staff (mostly Friends, but not all) from Friends’ institutions and for Friends teaching in other institutions.
Among the plenary speakers at this year’s conference will be:
- Malone University’s Jay Case, Students Are Not Simply Thinking Beings: Cultivating Desires for Quaker Principles
- Haverford College’s Tracey Hucks, Becoming ‘Quakerly’: The Legacy of Social Justice and its Challenges
- Antioch University-New England’s Steve Chase, Educating for Beloved Community: Cultivating Creative Maladjustment Within Ourselves and Our Students
There will be 26 sessions to choose from on academic planning, philosophy and theology, women’s studies, Quaker literature, spiritual and experiential learning, and classroom instruction.
A Quaker College presidents panel, a coffee house with music by Rachel and the Peacemakers, and opportunities for worship also are part of the event. The conference offers a wonderful space for sharing ideas – old and new – that promise to inform and enhance one’s work along with great fellowship and spiritual uplift.
