The topic of the podcast for this week is ally-ship and myself and Robert Solomon delve into what or how this looks like in the higher education setting.
Varied are the ways that that students form communities while within the college setting. Alliy-ship is one of them and is the idea that individuals/people are capable of moving past differences and working towards commonalities for others. It is the idea that rejects the idea that just because I don't have the same lived experiences as you i can't find empathy and compassion when working with others.
As professor Solomon and I discuss ally-ship, we begin to delve deeper into the idea that perhaps ally-ship is merely a different lens, such as friendship, by which to view things. Ally-ship, as we discuss, also tends to be a unifying phenomenon in nature. Take a listen and consider the possibilities by which you can work to create, foster or champion ally-ship for yourself and others- for this may change your entire perspective on persistence and success within the area of higher education.
