Statement From the President: Transforming the Climate Conversation on Earth Day

2024-04-22T06:49:52-07:00

President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D. On this 54th Anniversary of America's first Earth Day celebration, it is a time to reflect on how we moved from a consensus on the urgent need for environmental protection across the country to woefully underestimating the need for action about climate change. A recent study shows that most Europeans and Americans acknowledge that the climate is warming and that a warming planet will likely hurt humankind. At the same time, there is a distortion of the scientific consensus about the data, which leads to a tendency among the public to underestimate the [...]

Dr. Orlando Taylor: A Person to Emulate

2024-03-05T09:43:29-08:00

Orlando L. Taylor, Ph.D. By: Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D. The first time I stepped into the offices of Diverse Issues In Higher Education, I was with Dr. Orlando Taylor. He took me there to meet his long-time colleague and co-founder of the magazine, Dr. Bill Cox. As I listened to their wide-ranging conversation, about people they knew, or had known, and projects they worked on together, I was taken by the longevity of their connection to each other. They shared a common spirit in their separate spheres: to advance people of color through mentoring and teaching. In our [...]

President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D. This Veterans Day marks the first time I will commemorate our veterans without the presence of my husband, Ret. Army Maj. Bill Cherry. My beloved husband and dedicated veteran passed away peacefully on Feb. 12, 2023 (read Bill’s obituary here).   Bill was not just a veteran; he was a beacon of hope for many.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day: Statement from President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D.

2023-10-04T11:32:57-07:00

President Katrina S. Rogers, Ph.D. On this Indigenous Peoples’ Day and every day of the year, Fielding celebrates the notion of kinship within the fabric of Indigenous cultures around the world. Kinship is not only a biological connection that ties us to one another, but it remains a deeply rooted philosophy that contributes to the interconnection of all living things and the lands we inhabit. We all know, either through data or an intuitive sense, that human beings cannot go on forever living on our finite planet as if we had limitless resources. Planetary transformation, economic and social, [...]
