About this event

Students Teaching Students: The Untapped Power of American College Students

Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell is the 10th president of Spelman College. A leading liberal arts college for women of African descent, Spelman has long enjoyed a reputation as the nation’s leading producer of Black women scientists. Dr. Campbell received her B.A. in English literature from Swarthmore College. She earned her master’s in art history as well as her Ph.D. in humanities from Syracuse University. She holds honorary degrees from several colleges including her alma mater, Swarthmore. Having recently completed a book, An American Odyssey: The Life and Work of Romare Bearden, she is the recipient of the 2018 Hooks National Book Award and is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Campbell served as a member of the Alfred P. Sloan Board from 2008- 2020, and was elected to the Unity Technologies Board in September 2020. She also serves on the boards of the J. Paul Getty Trust, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

IUME is delighted to host a virtual reception after the lecture, which we hope will serve to reconnect IUME to TC alumni from the HBCU community. The goals for the virtual reception are to: 1). honor the historical and meaningful role Teachers College has played in helping to educate Black American educators over the years; 2). help encourage the continuation of this existing pipeline of academic success; and 3). foster fellowship between IUME and the HBCU community.
