Dr. Havidán Rodríguez, UTRGV Provost, will give the welcoming remarks at the first Women’s Faculty Network (WFN) meeting on the Brownsville campus. Moreover, Dr. Rodríguez will discuss the progress towards our consolidation. Dr. Marie Mora (Vice Provost Fellow for Faculty Affairs at UTPA) will also provide an overview of what the WFN has accomplished at UTPA from its inception under the NSF-funded ADVANCE Program. This will be a great opportunity to learn about the WFN and ADVANCE, and how they will benefit the women faculty at UTRGV.

Date:  November 24th
Time:  10:00 - 11:30
Location: Salon Esperanza (LHSB 2.604)

The next WFN meeting at UTPA will be a brunch on Thursday December 4th from 10:00-11:30 a.m.  Please mark your calendars! 

The last WFN meeting (October 21st) was with motivational speaker Melanie Mills.  She discussed “Navigating Uncertainty with Ease”.  There were 41 women who attended, including 29 tenured/tenure-track women (representing 17% of all T/TT women at UTPA), plus eight Lecturers/Clinical Faculty and Professional Staff, and four women from UTB.
