October 2020 Provost’s Corner
As we move into another month of online instruction, it is important now more than ever that we find ways to stay connected while we’re apart. Faculty, staff and students are feeling the impacts of being removed from campus both physically and mentally.
Learning to Teach Inclusively
Campus inclusivity — making NC State a safer, more welcoming place for all — spans all aspects of university life, from teaching and learning to service and innovation. The Office of Faculty Development’s |RED| Inclusive Teaching Certification seeks to enrich faculty and teaching graduate students with inclusive teaching training, to the benefit of all.
Extending a Helping Hand
Providing services to all of North Carolina’s 100 counties in “normal” times takes the tireless efforts of hundreds of NC State Extension workers. Add in the COVID-19 pandemic, and what Extension accomplishes from the mountains to the coast is nothing short of amazing.
Taking Steps Toward Racial Equity
Many events in 2020 brought issues of systemic racism and injustice to the forefront of the American consciousness. In response to these issues, the NC State community continues to strive to create a campus ingrained with equity, inclusivity and allyship, and is taking immediate steps to know and do better.
NC State Celebrates Outstanding Faculty
The Celebration of Faculty Excellence is held each spring to recognize outstanding faculty who have received prestigious awards, accolades or other distinctions during the previous year. In 2020, NC State honored 25 faculty virtually since the annual event could not be held in person.
Senior Vice Provost for Enrollment Management and Services to Retire
Senior Vice Provost for Enrollment Management and Services Louis Hunt has announced that he will retire at the end of the 2020-2021 academic year.
Changing with the Times
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Provost’s Office corollary units have continued to support NC State’s world-class academics and provide resources for the development of students, faculty and staff. We spoke to representatives from some of these units to gain insight into how they’ve adjusted over the past six months.
September 2020 Provost’s Corner
Thank you for your hard work and patience through another tumultuous month. Though the beginning of the academic year didn’t go as we hoped for, we are glad to be able to continue to provide our students with instruction and resources for success.
