Join us on Monday, February 22, 2021 for a virtual lecture presented by the esteemed and inspirational, Dr. Tiffany Anderson, on Civic Engagement and Community-Engaged Learning for Sustainable Healthy Communities.

Dr. Anderson has been identified as one of Education Week's 16 Leaders to Learn From and she has been highlighted in several documentaries as she has leveraged her role as an educator to promote creating sustainable healthy communities. She will share practical strategies she has used as the first African American female superintendent in Topeka Public Schools that received a national equity award as part of their local initiatives that have transformed the community with increased graduation and college placement rates and expanded partnerships.

As a member of the Board of the Kansas Board of Regents Postsecondary Technical Authority (TEA) and as the Co-Chair for the Governor’s Kansas Commission on Racial Equity and Justice, she advocates for the marginalized across Kansas. Dr. Anderson believes communities are strengthened when we work collaboratively. This session will inspire you and will give participants strategies to impact their classes, partnerships, and organizations.
