Podcast: The academy won's save us: Black women's health in higher education

Student Affairs Now Podcast

July 10, 2024

Podcast Description: Black women working in higher education as administrators, faculty, and staff face daily harms and traumas that affect their emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health and well-being. Black women are often hazed, shamed, and unsupported in myriad ways that put their health and their future at risk.

It is time for us to move beyond describing the problem and lean into discovering how to cope, survive, thrive,and embrace joy in our lives.
