Angela Duckworth has spent many years studying what predicts high levels of success. She has found that those among us who reach the highest levels of achievement demonstrate over time a combination of interest, practice, purpose and hope - or what she terms "grit." Gritty people focus on one thing and continue in the face of adversity. They may get disappointed, but do not remain so for long. They continue to practice despite setbacks because they are not only interested but also find meaning in what they do. Join us for a discussion of how we can apply her findings to the context of academia and how we as faculty, and our students, can increase our grit to achieve our immediate goals and greater purpose.
