The New Paltz UUP chapter and the Office of the Provost are pleased to invite eligible pre-tenured Academic and Professional faculty to attend a panel on the Dr. Nuala McGann Drescher Affirmative Action/Diversity Leave. The panel will be moderated by our current VP for Academics, Gowri Parameswaran and will include several past Drescher Leave recipients who will discuss the projects they did during their leave and how it helped them obtain tenure. In addition, Deb Gould will provide detailed information on the application process.
The deadline for receipt of applications in the Provost’s office is September 11–so please have your materials written up and ready to go. We will provide feedback on your specific questions. Deb Gould will provide more information in advance of the workshop for those who RSVP.
The panel will be held from 12:30-2:00pm on Wednesday, September 4 in the Wooster 3rd floor conference room. Lunch will be served.
Please RSVP now to Deb Gould (Provost’s Office) at firstname.lastname@example.org and also copy Mary Thompson, the UUP Chapter Assistant, at email@example.com .
The Drescher Leave is a joint UUP/NYS initiative and is awarded annually to Academics and Professionals who have not yet received permanent or continuing appointment (tenure). Preference is given to “minorities, women, employees with disabilities, or an employee with military status.” See website for detailed Program Guidelines: http://nysuup.lmc.ny.gov/diversity/drescher.html
