Luann Dummer Center for Women invites applicants for advisory board

The Luann Dummer Center for Women will have two openings on its advisory board – one for a faculty member and one for a graduate student.

The advisory board is comprised of roughly equal numbers of faculty, staff and students and meets approximately three times during the academic year to assist the director in the development of policy for the center, oversight of the budget, and in other ways that the director or the board may request.

The advisory board also serves as the search committee for subsequent directors of the center. There is no set term for regular members of the advisory board.

All full-time faculty and full- or part-time graduate students interested in serving on the advisory board are invited to send a brief statement of interest, including any information on involvement or experience with issues related to women, to Dr. Corrine Carvalho, Mail #4075.

It also is requested that graduate students seek a letter of support or recommendation to be sent to the board. The advisory board will review all statements and invite one faculty member and one graduate student to join the board.

Expressions of interest should be received no later than Monday, Oct. 5.

For additional information about the women's center or its advisory board, contact Carvalho or any of the board members: Dr. Angela High-Pippert (chair of Women's Studies), Dr. Jill Manske, Dr. Brenda Powell, Dr. Mark Stansbury-O'Donnell (who will step down this term), Katie Ngumba, Patricia Satzer, Victoria Svoboda and Breanna Alston (undergraduate student).
