This Tuesday Tip is more an occasion to share some updates and announcements as we approach the end of this academic year, and we plan for the next one.
March 25 was the deadline to apply for the positions of READI Coordinator and Equity Fellows, and since this process was completed, I want to take a moment to announce the names of the faculty members that were selected.
READI Coordinator: Rachel Teasdale (Earth and Environmental Sciences)
READI Equity Fellows:
Josephine Blagrave (Kinesiology)
Mark Faaita (Communication Arts and Sciences)
Jamie Gunderson (School of Education)
Katie Oesau (Business Information Systems)
Tina Hanson-Lewis (Chemistry and Biochemistry)
Grazyne Tresoldi (Agriculture)
Alisa Wade (History)
I am excited about the different disciplines that will be represented as we launch the new hub for Research in Equity, Antiracism, Diversity, and Inclusion in the Fall, and how I can be the first one to learn from these colleagues.
One key goal of READI will be to systematically assess the connections between faculty development and student success, and to collaborate with different units on campus to facilitate the process of assessment and continue to build a dialogue across divisions to help us overcome some academic silos.
