39: Nick Bates &
Supporting Men of Color
WELCOME TO THE EDUPUNX PODCAST
Nick Bates is the Assistant Director of Student Life at Loyola University Maryland. Nick is a sage human being with a love of appreciating the people around him and imparting knowledge onto his students, friends, and colleagues. And that's exactly what happens in this episode! I learned a lot in this episode - and I definitely do a lot of reflecting in the moment.
I'm most thankful that Nick visited me at UMass Boston to have this conversation because it was great to chat in person - so you get to hear the buzz of my campus, which is awesome. We dig into the topics of gender, masculinity, having grace with students as they're learning, receiving and giving compliments, and the importance educating and cultivating the greatness of men of color.
- This week we featured tunes from the new Dearist album, "Sonder," which was released last week on Spartan Records.
- We shared the tunes, "Beaches" and "Demuto" on this episode - and if you liked what you heard, go to SpartanRecords.com to snag a vinyl, CD, or digital copy of the album.

- This week is the first week of Mental Health Awareness Month, so I shared information about the National Suicide Prevention lifeline.
- This can be difficult for many people for many different reasons and sometimes it can feel like too much - so please know that you have an outlet in case you need someone to speak with when you aren't feeling great.
