FALL 2005


Annual Women's Faculty Dinner
Co-sponsored with the Women's Center and the Women's Leadership Council

This was the second annual event co-sponsored by the Vice Provost for Faculty Recruitment & Retention, the Women's Leadership Council and the Women's Center. New and "seasoned" faculty women from across the university had dinner together and reflected on the experience of being UVA faculty women. In keeping with the requests of 2004 participants, the dinner had a thematic focus. The theme for 2005 was mentorship. Conversations were open-ended, but structured by a set of questions on mentoring. Input from participants will help to improve career mentoring for all faculty.

Dialogue on Race in the Classroom
Hosted by Faculty Sustained Dialogue
(Go to http://www.virginia.edu/insideuva/2004/19/sustained_dialogue.html for an article on Faculty Sustained Dialogue)

This discussion with the Faculty Sustained Dialogue group was the first of a series offered by the office of the vpfrr. How and under what conditions do issues of race and other dimensions of difference emerge in the classroom and how do teachers respond? Faculty perspectives on this question cover a spectrum. Drawing on the work of the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning with its focus on faculty driven discussions, these forums will provide colleagues with opportunities to explore the pedagogical, scholarly, disciplinary and communicative issues in this often contested dimension of faculty work. Other conversations will be scheduled throughout Spring and Fall semesters 2006.

8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Bryd Seminar Room, Harrison Institute/Small Special Collections Library

Co-sponsored with the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies

This workshop focuses on advancing women and minorities in the STEM disciplines (science, technology,
engineering, and math), and relates to Title IX application in the area of science equity and access for women. The workshop will mark the beginning of a process that will help transform policies and practice in recruiting, hiring, promotion and retention of women and minorities in the sciences and engineering at UVa. The target audience includes senior administrators such as deans, associates deans, department chairs, and senior faculty members in the STEM fields. Participants will share best practices across schools, and evaluate, identify, and prioritize new strategies and measures of success.

Drs. Geraldine Richmond, Barbara Butterfield, and Jane Tucker will facilitate this workshop. They have worked with senior faculty and administrators at the University of Michigan, Columbia University, the University of Washington, and Georgia Tech. They have keen insight into what works (and what doesn't work) on an institutional level to eliminate barriers to full participation of minorities and women in the STEM disciplines.
