Condolences to former GRCC trustee and faculty member Cynthia Bristol

We extend condolences to Cynthia Bristol, former GRCC trustee and faculty member, on the passing of her husband, Robert (Bob) S. Bristol.

“Bob was an incredible supporter of our institution,” President Bill Pink said. “He was by trustee Bristol’s side at most events, always with a smile and a story to share of how he and Cynthia had ran into a current or former GRCC student while out in the community and how GRCC had impacted their life.  He believed in our college, and respected each one of you and the work you do. He will be missed.”

Everyday Survival and Collective Action: What We Can Learn from Disabled Faculty in a Time of Unwellness

Wednesday, February 17, 1 -2 PM

Please RSVP we ask that you do this 24 hours (or more) in advance of the event

The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic has raised startling questions about everyday life—for example, “How is it possible that I am required to do a full-time job while also providing full-time care for my family?” or “How can I negotiate questions of ‘safety’ with my co-workers, my community, even my closest loved ones?”

These questions surged into the limelight in 2020, yet few realize that they were already active topics of conversation in small, interdependent communities of disabled, BIPOC, queer, and otherwise marginalized people.

In Everyday Survival and Collective Action: What We Can Learn from Disabled Faculty in a Time of Unwellness, Margaret Price draws upon data from a survey and interview study with disabled faculty (Margaret Price- Disabled Faculty Study) to highlight themes such as “time,” “cost,” “technology,” and “accountability.”

These themes not only teach us more about the everyday lives and strategies of disabled faculty members, but also demonstrate that all participants in higher education will benefit from a cultural shift toward shared accountability and interdependent forms of care.

Important Notes:

ASL translation and CART captioning will be provided for this event.

The event will also be recorded and shared asynchronously after the talk.
