October 2023 Provost’s Corner
Dear faculty and staff,
We’re midway through the fall semester, with a successful first few months of the academic year behind us and plenty of activity ahead. I hope that you’ve all had some time to enjoy the cooler weather.
Soon, we’ll kick off Red and White Week, taking place Oct. 22-28. This is a time for faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends to reconnect and celebrate all that we love about NC State. The week includes Pack Appreciation Day, Wear Red, Get Fed events, a homecoming parade and football game against Clemson.
I hope that you will take time to attend the Chancellor’s Fall Address on October 23 at 1 p.m. in Talley Student Union. Chancellor Woodson will speak about the past 12 months and share NC State’s bold plans for the future.
Additionally, I encourage you to browse the rest of this month’s newsletter, which includes a look at our wonderful Provost’s Professional Experience Program students and an article about efforts to improve our approach to mental health on campus.
We also have two five-year reviews for deans and vice provosts coming up. This includes a review for Senior Vice Provost and Director Greg Raschke and the NC State University Libraries on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 9 – 10 a.m. and for Stephen P. Zelnak Jr. Dean Frank Buckless and the Poole College of Management on Thursday, Nov. 9, from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. There will be both in-person and virtual options available for this presentation.
Thank you so much for all you’ve done for our Wolfpack community so far this semester. I look forward to working alongside you to continue our progress throughout the year.
Until next time,
Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost
