15th Annual Provost's Leadership Retreat

The 15th Annual Provost's Leadership Retreat will be held on Monday, October 29, 2018, from 8:00 am to 2:15 pm at the Tinkham Veale University Center Ballroom A. The theme of the retreat is "Putting the 'Lead' in Leadership."

The half-day retreat features a presentation on Faculty Diversity Data reported by Vice President Marilyn Mobley and Faculty Diversity Officer Donna Davis Reddix.

PowerPlay Interactive Development and Dr. Stephanie Goodwin will present an interactive theater performance exploring how implicit bias (based on gender and race) influences the hiring of faculty in the campus community. Topics of discussion included why diversity, equity and inclusion are important and a priority; how implicit bias happens and how it impacts/influences ourselves, our colleagues, and the hiring process; and how to interrupt implicit/unconscious bias when it is having negative impact on the search bias.
