RESECHEDULED: Spring Promotion & Tenure Workshops
The Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Women will hold its Spring 2014 Workshops on Promotion & Tenure from 5:30-7 p.m. March 20 at the Brody School of Medicine, room 2W38, and at the same time March 25 in room 2W50. The workshops are open to all faculty members at ECU but will focus on the requirements for health sciences personnel.
The two-night workshop will be presented in two parts. The March 20 session is focused on tenure and promotion to associate professor. The March 25 session covers the process for promotion to full professor. Individuals may attend all or part of the sessions.
Presentations and discussion will be led by Vice Chancellor of Health Sciences Dr. Phyllis Horns, Brody School of Medicine Dean Dr. Paul Cunningham and other health sciences deans; Faculty Senate Chair Dr. Mark Sprague, Dorothy Muller from the Office of Faculty Excellence and Lisa Sutton, assistant vice chancellor for Health Sciences Personnel Administration and director of Brody School of Medicine Faculty Employment. A panel of recently tenured faculty and recently promoted will also be on hand to answer questions and provide examples of PADs.
The workshop may be especially important for women and minority faculty who might not fit as easily into established mentoring networks. Please direct any questions to Rachel Roper, event organizer and co-chair of CCSW, at email@example.com.

More than 200 faculty, staff and students attended the Women’s Leadership Luncheon on Nov. 18. Topics for discussion included addressing community issues – such as hunger – and the evolution of leadership. Donations of canned goods at the luncheon yielded enough food to feed Thanksgiving dinner for 20 families with students at Elmhurst Elementary.

The Fall Promotion & Tenure Workshop for faculty held Nov. 11 on East Campus drew nearly 60 faculty attendees. This regular CCSW program is offered once each semester and alternates between main campus and the Health Sciences Campus.
