Knowledge is a multi-faceted building block for all societies. Whether blue or white collar in occupation, whether an urban or rural dweller, everyone transfers knowledge to someone. Knowledge is a main “how-to” construct that keeps productivity, processes, and legacies moving forward. A sound foundation of knowledge transfer facilitates innovation so that progressive versions of the knowledge contiguously emerges.

To teach, obviously, is to impart knowledge. Knowledge is often held by the more privileged in society —those who have had higher socio-economic family environments… those who have been able to afford more education… those who have cultural capital. Knowledge is indeed power.
Northcentral University’s School of Health Sciences is excited to announce that the Master of Health Administration program was selected by the Association of University Programs in Health Administration, or AUPHA, as one of the 2020-2021 Bugbee-Falk Award recipients. While AUPHA chooses the recipient programs, the student recipient is actually chosen by their program.
I teach because I am passionate about learning. I can see things from a new perspective through the eyes of my students. Teaching stretches my thinking. I believe approaching teaching as a learner helps me support my students. I bring my knowledge and experience with me as I stand for a moment in their shoes when I’m reviewing their work. From this vantage point I reflect on what else might they benefit from thinking about or learning next.
We are amid a new reality for our world. With COVID-19 hitting the scene and changing the scope of how we work; we must continue to acknowledge the importance of creating and accessing a Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) policy in the virtual workplace.
Diversity is the characteristics and attributes that make individuals different, where inclusion is the social standards and behaviors that help people feel accepted.
