The Spring 2014 Promotion & Tenure Workshop for faculty was held March 20 & 25 on the ECU health sciences campus, focused on tenure and promotion to associate professor and also the process for promotion to full professor. This regular CCSW program is offered once each semester, alternating between main campus and the health sciences campus. The Fall 2013 workshop on east campus drew nearly 60 faculty attendees. The workshop may be especially important for women and minority faculty who might not fit as easily into established mentoring networks. Watch a video recording of the Spring 2014 workshops.
The CCSW hosted a brown bag lunch discussion on Health and Wellness for ECU Staff focused on balancing demands at work and in life on March 11 and 12. This is an event the committee hopes to continue this year.
The Chancellor's Committee on the Status of Women hosted a series of discussions March 5 to mark International Women's Day at ECU. Presentations included Social Media Benefits & Challenges, Sex and Safety, a healthy lunch, International Women and Respect, From Victim to Challenger, Financial Health and Physical Health. The opening session included partners from other countries participating via ECU's Global Classroom, and the lunch discussion featured a panel of students from Canada, Kenya, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.
Other event sponsors included the Ledonia Wright Cultural Center, the Office of Equity and Diversity, Student Affairs, Women's Studies and the Kinesiology Student Association. Read coverage and see photos from this event by ECU News Services.
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.
