Our guest speaker is Gabriel Alejandro Cortez, PhD, Director, ENLACE Leadership Institute, Master's in Higher Education, Literacy, Leadership, & Development-College of Education from Northeastern Illinois University. His reserach interests have focused on grassoots activisim in education; intercultural relations, cultural identity, globalization and Chicago history. (NEIU faculty website)
Dr. Cortez is the co-author of the "Teaching & Learning Toolkit for Higher Education". He states, "Instructors, you have the power to make self and collective care a priority in your classes. Self care refers to taking care of yourself. Further, collective care is a form of caring for the community. However, self care IS NOT a selfish act. It is in itself caring for the community by engaging in practices that heal, recharge, refocus, etc. It is difficult to perform optimally when you have not shown care for yourself."
