The Fraternity and Sorority Knowledge Community (FSKC) provides a forum for organizations and professionals working with fraternities and sororities to discuss the ideas and issues that can advance the field.
In preparation for the 2019 NASPA Annual Conference, the Fraternity and Sorority Knowledge Community (FSKC) developed a program guide designed to draw attendees’ attention to programs, events, and other information of particular interest to attendees looking to engage with the topics of fraternities and sororities.

Their world fascinated me. My world, well… was different.

I have struggled to define what it means to be a LatinaMamiScholar on the tenure-track (TT) and believe this is rooted in fear of speaking truth to power. My journal is peppered with frustrated verbal brainstorms from which themes have emerged. An entry titled “The Canary in the Coalmine of Academia” lists multiple causes for what I described as “scholar-mami battle fatigue.” Two days later, I was called into the office of an administrator (subtext: white; not a parent; not TT).
In attempts to challenge our implicit biases towards Black men, social media is a wrecking force. In recent news, P&G previewed a video highlighting implicit bias.
