Dear faculty and staff,
From classes to vacations, fall semester planning and more, our faculty and staff stay busy during the summer months. Last summer, you shared a wealth of experiences with us in our newsletter, and we’d like to hear from you again.
Tell the campus community about your summer travel, research, community engagement and more in the August 2018 Provost’s Office newsletter. If interested, please send a paragraph description of your summer adventures, along with a high-resolution photo and your name/position/department to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 10.
We already know about a few things happening around campus, including summer classes, New Student Orientations and camps and conferences. We’re also getting ready to welcome many new faculty for the fall semester. If you see a new face or two, be sure to say hello!
If you are looking for new ways to Think and Do before the new academic year starts, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities that will allow you to serve our community. I would also encourage you to take advantage of activities like attending an NCSU Libraries summer workshop, visiting one of the exhibitions at the Gregg Museum, strolling around the JC Raulston Arboretum and more.
Of course, if you haven’t picked up a copy of this year’s Common Reading Program selection, now is a great time to do so. $2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America is a great addition to any summer reading list.
Whatever your summer plans are, I hope that you find some time to rest, relax and enjoy time with your favorite people, and even read a good book or two. I am excited to see so much activity on campus, and look forward to what’s next as we journey toward the 2018-2019 academic year.
To keep up with all academic and faculty- or staff-related developments, follow @NCStateProvost on Twitter.
Until next time,
Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost
