Dr. Alberta M. Gloria, AMUW Women's Chair in Humanistic Studies and professor of counseling psychology at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, will deliver the Distinguished Eleanor H. Boheim lecture at Marquette University on Wednesday, April 29th at 7:00 p.m. in the Beaumier Suite of the Raynor Memorial Library at Marquette.
The topic of the lecture will be Cura Personalis in Academia Today: The Value of Building Strong Relationships. A cornerstone of Jesuit traditions, “cura personalis” or “care for the whole person” has become a distinguishing factor in Marquette’s academic community. In her time here on campus, Dr. Gloria has observed the remarkable effect cura personalis has on Marquette students and the important role that the academic family plays in a student’s success. All are invited to attend this lecture in which Dr. Gloria reveals the value behind building strong relationships and how it relates to one’s success.
Dr. Gloria's primary research interests include the psychological and socio-cultural factors affecting Latinas/os and other racial and ethnic minority students in higher education. Dr. Gloria is the co-editor of a book on Latin@s in the educational pathway and has published numerous articles in professional journals. She has also received several teaching and research awards, including the 2008 Outstanding Latina/o Faculty in Research/Teaching in Higher Education Award from the American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education and Fellow of the Society of Counseling Psychology of the American Psychological Association.
