Prior to becoming a full-time graduate faculty member, his professional practice with college students were in the context of multicultural development, academic support and advising, leadership development, residence life, and judicial affairs, during which he also taught both undergraduate and graduate students. Alvim’s research interests include diversity, with a focus on the intersection of religious convictions and public higher education; Christian scholarship, particularly as it pertains to the integration of faith and learning; supervised practice in student affairs by way of reflection; and teaching, learning, and collaboration in the context of conversations and dialogue.
Alvim’s presentation reorients faculty and student affairs educators to shared educational goals, emphasizing collaboration across campus in the promotion of a transformative and holistic education. Toward that end, his talk will also highlight the role of “conversations” as a form of experiential learning and “wholeness” as a means by which students’ hearts can be fully engaged in their college experience.
