I am going to make this plug for my friends at Friends Association for Higher Education coming this summer. I would be there if I wasn’t already all traveled out. This note is geared towards young Friends who are in higher education (students, scholars, teachers, etc.) I can’t encourage you enough to go. Actually, if you want more convincing you can read my essay about my experience in the summer edition of the FAHE newsletter. Here’s the blurb:
Are you a young Friend (or an older one) interested in college teaching or student services? If so, consider attending the Friends Association for Higher Education conference this summer, June 17-20, at William Penn College in Oskaloosa, Iowa. FAHE is always open to all, but this year we would like to offer a special invitation to graduate students and other young adults, given that our theme is Teaching and Mentoring as Service.
FAHEs purpose is to provide a supportive relationship and opportunities for fellowship among all who share Quaker ideals of higher education, whether on Quaker or non-Quaker campuses. It does this by enhancing member’s appreciation of Friends’ religious heritage and nurturing the individual and corporate search for Truth. http://www.earlham.edu/~fahe/conference.htm
There you go, that was painless wasn’t it? Let me know if you plan to go.
