2021 Faculty Convocation: Stepping Forward Together
Stepping Forward Together will be the theme of the 2021 Faculty Convocation on Friday, Aug. 20, at the Martin Center for the Arts. The event is hosted by Provost Kimberly D. McCorkle and will begin at 9 a.m., but I invite you to arrive at 8:15 a.m. and join us for refreshments, visit with the other faculty, and meet Provost McCorkle. The convocation will include an introduction of our new faculty, recognition of those achieving faculty emeritus status, and the presentation of the distinguished faculty awards. I will provide remarks, and you will also hear from Board of Trustees member Dr. Virginia Foley, Faculty Senate President Stephen Hendrix, SGA President Mason Mosier, and Provost McCorkle, as well as the ETSU Bluegrass Band providing musical entertainment. We are on the eve of one of the most exciting seasons on a university campus, and I look forward to seeing you on August 20 as we prepare to begin the 2021-22 academic year.
