DEVELOPMENT NEWS

As a sense-making species, we need the physical and psychic grounding of connecting to places in the world. We often carry multiple and overlapping identities from the locales that call to us. As the writer Azar Nafisi observed, “You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place...like you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.” Our students often express a similar feeling as they graduate — that they will never pass this way again in the same way as before.

As a distributed community, Fielding’s members are keenly sensitized to the ways in which we build community every time we connect to each other, whether it be by phone, email, Zoom, or face to face. We teleport in from our places to create something new and ephemeral—in the moment when we are together—and

“How is our world touched and shaped by our Fielding sense of place? ”

FIELDING IN THE NEWS

ne essential element of our humanity is our affinity for places. Mountains, seas, cities, canyons, and desert — these spaces nourish, energize, and sustain us in life-giving ways. Home, family, and community — constructed over time and re-built over the course of our lives, these spaces nurture the people we are becoming each day.

It is in this spirit of honoring the spaces and places of our Fielding community members that we present this issue about Where We Live & Work.

then that moment is gone and we carry that memory until the next time we meet. So we asked ourselves: What do each of us create each day and how is our world touched and shaped by our Fielding sense of place? As Fielding, we intentionally seek to build a community founded on our collective values of transformational learning and social justice in order to create a more just, humane, and sustainable world. The stories herein embody all the beautiful complexity that makes up our shared space. I look forward to seeing each of you throughout the year in the place that is Fielding.

hen I started working at Fielding in 1983, we used three forms of communication and interaction: in person, telephone (corded, not the mobile type), and US mail. There was no internet for non-military use in the US, no fax, and overnight mail delivery came later. Our correspondence was typed on an electronic typewriter; occasionally, we tolerated a handwritten piece of work from students as documentation of learning. Communication came at a cost. Meeting face to face meant traveling by land or air to spend time with each other. (Two of our founders, Hallock Hoffman and Renate Tesch, were pilots and owned a small private plane.) Students traveled to meet together at monthly cluster gatherings facilitated by a local faculty member. Faculty from other parts of the country visited other clusters at their invitation, usually for a full weekend. Santa Barbara-based program directors visited each cluster at least once a year. I saw much of the United States and some of Canada that way, racking up frequent flyer miles. Being together was precious time, and it was filled with learning and food and fun. There were also three regional sessions that included faculty across Psychology and Human & Organization Development (our only doctoral programs at the time) from that region and the Santa Barbara-based administration. And, of course, there was the luxury of a whole week together during Summer Session at La Casa de Maria retreat center in the hills of Santa Barbara.

In between the intensity of those in-person gatherings were days spent sitting in one’s office and waiting for the mail, which contained printed copies of student work that was logged and stamped and then circulated to the right person for reading and response. For accreditation purposes, we kept copies of a sampling of all that work for teams to review as authentic student work products. (Think lots of file cabinets with oddly sized packets of materials!) We sometimes reviewed tape recordings of student presentations, especially as part of the applied portions of student coursework. On occasion, these presentations might be several hours long. We wrote lots and lots of letters with feedback to students about their work and their progress – and we mailed them. Sometimes, it seemed like a good idea to talk on the phone, but we did that judiciously because phone rates were not cheap and were highest during the business day. Students were usually at work then, anyway. We always volunteered to place the call, so students wouldn’t have to pay for it (HOD always had the highest phone bill.) That sometimes meant carefully tracking time zones and coming in to the office early or staying late so we could catch each other by phone. I came to know student and faculty voices as well as, if not better than, their faces, and almost better than the voices of my relatives! The feeling at the office was quiet and deep – like a library in the old days. We visited other staff members’ offices sometimes just to get up and away from our desks. Personally, I liked roaming around the building and making excuses for interrupting what other people were doing. Because Fielding is distributed, I have never taken for granted the opportunities for interaction with members of this community. In the ’80s, I felt close to students and faculty through their written and recorded work and our occasional in-person conversations. I appreciated the good company of other staff in Santa Barbara. The pace of those interactions has changed quite a lot in both form and feeling over the last three and a half decades. Already this morning, I reviewed two student assessment contracts on my phone over breakfast, met on Zoom with a student in Virginia about her dissertation data analysis, and planned some future collaborative work with an alum in the Caribbean (also on Zoom). I get more done thanks to technology, and I get it done faster. I am able to get closer to more colleagues. I have reduced my carbon footprint. Are you waiting for a “but”? I’m sure there must be tradeoffs in the depth of my reflections, in the care with which I choose words of feedback, in the appreciation I have for the touch and taste and smell of physical settings around the continent. In the end, though, the purpose for which we use the tools of communication remains constant: to build relationships within which we are changed as individuals and as a community. I remain grateful for all of the ways in which we have been able to be present with each other.

ext time you’re at Winter Session in Santa Barbara, take a break from learning and catching up with colleagues, and take the electric shuttle over to State Street. As you stroll along the American Riviera’s iconic, palm-lined shoppingand-dining thoroughfare, you’ll see 125 brightly colored Fielding flags flapping in the ocean breeze on either side of the avenue.

For one week every year — the week that coincides with Winter Session — the city’s Downtown Organization flies flags honoring Fielding Graduate University and welcoming our visitors. Bearing the proud faces of our accomplished graduates – Arthur Coronado, Gloria Gutierrez, and Karen Hempstead – and the warm colors used on our website, they also show tourists and remind the city’s residents that we’ve been a vibrant part of the area’s intellectual community for more than 40 years. Though Fielding pioneered distance learning, and our community understands that Fielding exists everywhere that our students, faculty, alumni, and staff are actively sharing our knowledge and values, Santa Barbara will always be where the university was born.

Fielding at Work on Capitol Hill

For decades, the only official Fielding offices were on the West Coast. But for the past few years, Fielding has been operating an office in the nation’s capital, where several dedicated staff members manage our strategic initiatives and research, sponsored programs, and federal grants. “Fielding established a physical presence in Washington DC to advance three mission critical goals,” says President Katrina Rogers, PhD: “to implement programs for broadening participation in advancing leadership of women and people of color in the STEM professions, to offer programs for our alumni throughout the region, and to raise awareness among higher-education colleagues about Fielding. It is our vision to use graduate education as a vehicle to create scholar-practitioners who are vested and active in positive social change in their professional lives and their communities.” In April, the DC staff moved into a brand new office on Capitol Hill with extensive space for hosting gatherings of alumni or Mid-Atlantic cluster meetings. The cheerful space has beautiful top-floor meeting rooms with panoramic views of the city and an outdoor rooftop terrace with a view of the US Capitol Building. (Plus there’s a Trader Joe’s in the basement!) “The new Fielding office will provide the perfect setting for us to advance the work of several National Science Foundation-funded Fielding initiatives,” says Orlando

Taylor, PhD, Fielding’s VP for Strategic Initiatives and Research and leader of the DC team. “For example, Fielding’s collaborative Center for the Advancement of STEM Leadership will be housed in the space. Among its goals will be to influence national policy on STEM inclusion and diversity as an essential requirement for advancing American competitiveness in the STEM fields. Fielding’s proximity to the US Congress and other federal agencies will enhance the university’s visibility and presence on the national stage in the pursuit of this work.”

OUR EAST COAST HUB

The DC office also manages Fielding’s partnership with the University of the District of Columbia for the Urban Leadership and Entrepreneurship doctoral program, and supports faculty, students, and alumni who are working on grants. Staff there includes Katherine McGraw, PhD, director of sponsored programs; Melissa Wynn, STEM continuing education and special projects coordinator; and Helen Hancock, administrative assistant.

Orlando Taylor

“We’re a landing point for the East Coast alumni and students,” says Dr. McGraw “—something to grab onto on this side of the country.”

Katherine McGraw

The new office is located at 700 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, 2nd floor, Washington, DC 20003.•

ut simply, Flavio Da Silva helps organizations talk their way to harmony.

“People call me when they’re in trouble,” says the new Fielding graduate, who earned his PhD in Human and Organizational Systems. “I help them find solutions or new pathways to foster well-being, good relationships, and more integrated thinking across large social systems.” A lack of communication causes systems to decay and misfire, he says. “Through dialogue, you can build a very refined sense of peace.”

here is Fielding? For many of us, it’s often on our screens during Zoom sessions with fellow students, faculty members, and academic advisors — and these meetings can happen just about anywhere. Students and alumni tell us they’ve Zoomed “in the kitty condo at an animal shelter,” “while waiting for a mammogram,” and “from my sofa with my cat on one side and my neighbor’s dog on the other.” “I’ve had several students who attend Zoom meetings from their ‘cloffices’ — closets that function as an office,” says faculty member Mimi Ormerod, PhD. “I’ve Zoomed from most of the United States as I traveled around it in a van during the majority of my time at Fielding,” says graduate J Logan Walls, PhD. “I held my final oral review on South Padre Island, Texas,” says Kimberly Davis Thompson, PhD. “My chair was physically present, one committee member attended from L.A., and another from Miami. It was tricoastal.” Such is the beauty of Fielding. Enjoy these views of other Fielding workspaces.•

Da Silva came to Fielding in 2011 after meeting alum Juanita Brown at a conference. Brown co-created the World Café method of organizing large groups of people into small group dialogues for knowledge sharing. “She encouraged me to take a look at Fielding and to expand and continue her work. So I was encouraged to take the same path and see if I could take it further — and I think I did. At least, I proved how effective the World Café can be in a large-scale, long-term endeavor such as the Generation of Peace project, based in Ceara, Brazil, done in cooperation with UNESCO.” “Generation of Peace” was the basis for his dissertation, and had the powerful aim of building a culture of peace among more than 700 high schools and their communities. Da Silva focused on promoting inclusion and respect for diversity among nearly half a million youth and their families, as well as thousands of teachers and administrators. Through this work, he was recognized as a Graduate Fellow through Fielding’s Marie Fielder Center for Democracy, Leadership, and Education Da Silva had been a trainer and consultant for years, but Fielding helped him broaden his work to develop this large-scale process. “I have become who I am thanks to Fielding,” he says. “I got the right language to use for academia, enterprises, NGOs, and spiritual communities.” Fielding also improved his ability to work from anywhere in the world. “I learned that people could be on the same page even from thousands of miles away from each other,” he says. “I got better at teaching and consulting from a distance because I learned from a distance, trusting that people out there have the same longing that we have: to change the world.” •

arjorie Woo already had considerable experience in the corporate world when she decided to get her PhD. Having grown up in California and worked at Xerox, she transferred to China for work and started a consulting company in Taiwan in leadership development. She coaches executives at Apple, IBM, and Hewlett Packard. So she wanted a graduate school that respected her background. “Fielding is the most applicable learning journey in adult development, in my perspective,” she says. “It was a deeper level of understanding for adults that have a certain amount of life experience in their work, anywhere in the world. Most of the students and graduates I came into contact with were very much accomplished in their own right and doing things that were benefitting society at large. I applaud that.” She earned a Certificate in Evidence Based Coaching (EBC) here in 2008, and a PhD in Human & Organizational Development in 2012. “Fielding helped me articulate my values and find my voice,” says Woo. “It’s particularly important for women to be confident enough to have a voice and an opinion and stick to it.” She and her group have coached over 1,200 senior level executives and over 25,000 mid-level managers in China, and she says she regularly relies on lessons she learned at Fielding, from positive psychology and adult development to facing change and our social responsibility to the environment and planet as a whole. She also created a coaching-certificate program in China modeled after Fielding’s EBC program, which now has 160 graduates. Six participants have gone on to earn their MAs and doctorates at Fielding. “I’m committed to giving back, from what I’ve learned and how I’ve benefitted professionally,” says Woo, who attends annual Fielding cluster meetings in Shanghai with visiting faculty like Richard Appelbaum, Dorothy Agger-Gupta, Margo Okazawa-Rey, Connie Corley, and David Willis. “There’s a sizeable Fielding community here in Asia,” she says with a smile. “The legacy is alive and well out here.” •

ut simply, Flavio Da Silva helps organizations talk their way to harmony.

“People call me when they’re in trouble,” says the new Fielding graduate, who earned his PhD in Human and Organizational Systems. “I help them find solutions or new pathways to foster well-being, good relationships, and more integrated thinking across large social systems.” A lack of communication causes systems to decay and misfire, he says. “Through dialogue, you can build a very refined sense of peace.”

Q. What inspires your giving?

A. I donate to scholarships at Fielding because I believe in the university’s mission and am committed to advancing high-quality research. I was fortunate to receive scholarships and grants while in graduate school and understand first-hand the financial constraints associated with research and funding education.

“I remember my grandfather, Victor, as a distinguished gentleman who always reminded us of the importance of self-improvement,” she says, “and never gave up in the face of adversity. He survived two world wars, and, having lost all his worldly assets as a result, rebuilt his life and succeeded. Family cohesion, work, and education were the central values that gave meaning to his life. While he is long gone, I never forgot the importance grandfather placed on self-improvement through learning, which is why I am happy to share this value through a modest endowed scholarship in Victor’s name.”

NEW SCHOLARSHIPS

Introducing New Scholarships The Valerie Bentz Endowment Fund for Mindful Inquiry & Transformative Phenomenology The Fund was launched in late 2017 by a group of Fielding alumni who wanted to recognize the important work of Dr. Valerie Bentz and invest in research toward a more caring world. Our goal is to raise $100,000 to support the Fund, which will support phenomenological and mindful inquiry practice at Fielding, student scholarships, and educational opportunities for the Fielding community and beyond. Every contributor to the Fund will receive access to a monthly Somatics, Phenomenology, and Communicative Leadership webinar.

The Dr. Sherry L. Hatcher Honorary Scholarship Fund, endowed by Dr. Elizabeth A. Hardy and Mr. Rick Omlor Fielding is proud to announce the establishment of this Fund to support the research of our students. It means a great deal to us that a Fielding alum, Elizabeth A. Hardy, PhD, and her husband, Rick Omlor, have chosen to establish a named scholarship fund in recognition of our beloved faculty member, Sherry L. Hatcher, PhD, and her work at Fielding. Scholarships from the Fund will be awarded to outstanding students in Clinical Psychology at Fielding whose research takes a creative and potentially impactful approach to addressing important problems in the field. In addition to their gift to launch the endowed fund, the donors have pledged a matching gift to inspire more donations. Join us today by making a gift to the Fund, and it will be doubled.

Dr. Dori Pelz-Sherman Memorial Scholarship Fund With the support of several Fielding alumni, Michael Pelz-Sherman established this Fund in memory of his late wife Dori Pelz-Sherman, PhD, who passed away on July 13, 2017. Dori graduated from Fielding in 2010 with her doctorate in Psychology. She was an exemplary representative of our education model. After receiving her degree, Dr. Pelz-Sherman worked to support post-partum mothers struggling with depression, families with special-needs children, and patients with a wide array of mental-health challenges. The funds will be used for an annual student scholarship to new and or continuing students in Clinical Psychology at Fielding.

Scholarships make a huge impact on our students’ lives. They acknowledge students in a meaningful way, help meet financial challenges, and support important research in social sciences. Contributions to all scholarship funds can be made at fielding.edu/giving.
