Girls 4 Greatness

Jun 7, 2023

I could not be more excited to be bringing you a conversation I had with not only an extraordinary human being but also a dear friend. This week on the Girls 4 Greatness podcast I am sitting down to chat with Rebecca Chopp, Ph.D. 

Rebecca is a widely published author, editor, and academic in the fields of education, philosophy, religion and feminism. Rebecca served as the 18th, and first female Chancellor of the University of Denver. She was additionally the President of Swarthmore College and Colgate University, and she served as Provost and Executive Vice President of Academic Affairs at Emory university and as Dean at Yale University.  Rebecca has served on the Governing Board of the Association of American Colleges and Universities, Olin University, and The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and on the American Council on Education as well.  

Rebecca also happens to be an ordained minister, but she is currently passionate about being an Alzheimer’s advocate. Rebecca co-founded the Voices of Alzheimer’s, and she serves on the Board of the Colorado Alzheimer’s Association. In addition, Rebecca is currently working on a book entitled, Not Your Grandmother’s Alzheimer’s: Refusing to Surrender by Living Well.

My friends, Rebecca is someone I greatly admire for many reasons but one of the greatest is her ability to find joy in some of the most difficult of circumstances. I invite you all to listen in as she shares how and why she has decided to live with joy. I have no doubt that Rebecca’s beautiful wisdom and huge heart will inspire you to do the same.
