In this October report I hope you will see glimmers of critical empathy and critical hope – in the work we are doing with EDI, collaborative research, student-centred initiatives, and community-building projects.
Colleagues across the Maple League – from students to staff, faculty to administrators – are exercising the hope muscle that keeps us on an optimistic course, even when we might see plenty of evidence that things don’t work or don’t work as quickly as we would like.
This is hard work, and to erase the struggle is to fall into the trap of toxic positivity.
