• Pedagogy and politics of faculty of Asian and Pacific Islander descent
• Being a fulfilled and engaged teacher/scholar
• Career growth such as tenure and alternate academic tracks
• Teaching and thriving in one’s institutional context
• Dealing with religious, social, ethnic, racial, and learning diversities in the classroom
