The next Faculty Council meeting will take place on Friday, November 18, 2016, in Kerr Hall 2001. All members of the faculty are welcome to attend. Chancellor Carol Folt will present a working draft of the University’s Strategic Framework.
The Community and Diversity Committee will present Women and Minorities in Stem from Pipeline to Retention: A Conversation with Faculty Council. This panel discussion will bring together faculty and administrators from across campus to discuss efforts to attract women and minorities to (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) STEM fields. Panelists will discuss strategies and programs at Carolina for diversifying and attracting applicants to STEM, efforts at recruiting and retaining a diverse STEM faculty, and campus-wide support networks for women and minority faculty and postdocs. We will also discuss ways that the University is working to highlight the achievements of women and minority faculty in STEM fields.
Professor Andrew Perrin, chair of the Curriculum Review Working Group, will provide an overview of the process for updating the general education curriculum. He will return to Faculty Council in December for a longer discussion.
