ADVANCE Distinguished Lecture Series brown bag luncheons

Submitted by Chardie Baird

The K-State office for the advancement of women in science ande ngineering, or KAWSE, is hosting two brown bag luncheons where junior faculty women who have received ADVANCE Distinguished Lecture Series awards will discuss their experiences and offer tips.

The purpose of the lecture series is to provide financial and organizational support to eligible junior women faculty members in the science, technology, engineering and math disciplines to bring leaders in their fields to K-State.These leaders will be valuable mentors and can serve as future referees for manuscripts and grant proposals and as outside references for tenure applications.

If you are interested in learning more about the lecture series, please bring a lunch and join us from noon to 1 p.m. on either Tuesday, Sept. 11, in 201 Leadership Studies Building or on Wednesday, Sept. 12, in 201A Waters Hall. The K-State office for the advancement of women in science and engineering will provide dessert, water, tea and lemonade.        

Most tenure-earning women professors in the natural science, social science and engineering departments in the colleges of Agriculture, Arts and Sciences, Engineering, Human Ecology, Technology and Aviation, and Veterinary Medicine are eligible to apply for the ADVANCE Distinguished Lecture Series. Faculty are eligible if they are in tenure-earning status, within the first five years of their employment, are not currently in the process of applying for tenure and have previously hosted fewer than five lecture series speakers. Eligible participants may receive only one award during the academic year.
