In one's time at University, change is everywhere. Semesters change; friends change; majors change; roommates change; living spaces change; courses change; grades change; jobs change; thoughts change; You change. How is Texas State a place that loves You into the best You? What here is focused on Your Becoming? And how can You jump in the Flow such that You are Open to all the possibilities? From Brandon's experience as student, faculty, and Transcend Advisor, he will share experiences and wisdom related to this topic.
Dr. Brandon Jonna Beck (he/they/thon), lifelong San Martian, recipient of Texas State masters and doctoral degrees in fields of education, literature and creative writing, former Texas State faculty in Curriculum and Instruction, and founding advisor of the Transcend Student Organization, currently serves the St Mark's Episcopal Preschool Board and works as Sexton at St. Mark's, reads tarot in exchange for ginger soda, writes and performs poetry, kayaks and swims the San Marcos River, occasionally appears on KZSM.org's Bookmarked, and serves the community in his vocation as a Monk - especially as an educator and doula of transformation at the intersections of mental health, recovery, gender, sexuality, and spirituality/faith/religion.
