Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., director of the National Institute on Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), who leads the nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and Dr. Christopher J. Lebron, a professor at Johns Hopkins University, both presented keynote addresses during the just-concluded Faculty Development Week. Dr. Lebron is the author of The Making of Black Lives Matter: A Brief History of An Idea. Following his address, he, Dr. Elizabeth A. Moore, ’81, G-’94, & PhD ’11, Interim Chief Diversity Officer; and Franklin Jones Jr., ’17 & G-’18, a faculty member in the American Sign Language program, conducted a dialogue.
Faculty Development Week also included sessions with Dr. Jeffrey W. Lewis, ’76, Interim Provost; Dr. Khadijat K. Rashid, ’90, Interim Dean of the Faculty, and the five school leaders; Bendita Cynthia Malakia, an attorney with Hogan Lovells; customer service, technology, and library services training; and much more. Kudos to Dr. Teresa Blankmeyer Burke, Faculty Administrator for Faculty Development, and the staff of the Office of the Provost for their work in organizing the week-long virtual program.
