Networking on the American Rover Sailboat


On Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019 new faculty along with there families joined senior leaders and college administrators for networking on the American Rover Sailboat. Over 37 individuals were in attendance across all six colleges. Senior Leaders included Provost Agho, Elaine Pearson, Andy Casiello and Renee Olander. In addition, Dean Gail Dodge, Associate Dean Maggie Barber and Associate Dean Khan Iftekharuddin participated. New faculty played a networking game called "Follow the Leader" in which they answered questions about senior leaders through interactions with the leaders. The winner of the game was Denise Chernitzer from Nursing.

"This event was success and it is hoped that this event will be a annual opportunity to network with new faculty," says Dr. Sparkman-Key, Academic Affairs Director for Faculty Diversity and Retention.
