Inaugural lecture: Don't blame the lettuce

When Dr. Tim Slocum began working a part-time job at a school, he was passionate about social justice. He was doing political work in Seattle at the time.
His job at the school focused on children with learning disabilities. It was supposed to pay the bills, but over the course of two weeks, it changed everything. “I saw that the difference between literacy and illiteracy was as profound as any of the political issues I was focused on. It was a total life changer.”
Slocum, a professor in the Special Education and Rehabilitation department, spoke to friends, family and colleagues during his Inaugural Lecture. The event is a tradition for new professors, and it’s coordinated through the Provost’s Office. It takes place at the Utah State University President’s House.
During his presentation—and in a subsequent interview—his enthusiasm was infectious. His love for social justice lives on, but his passion is in preparing the next generation of special educators. Read the rest on the EEJ Ed Notes blog.
