Three College of Arts & Sciences faculty members are using the lessons they learned this summer to become better leaders in their roles on campus.

Drs. Dena Eber, digital arts faculty and graduate coordinator in the School of Art; Sheila Roberts, geology; and Carolyn Tompsett, psychology, participated in the 2016 Higher Education Resource Services (HERS) Bryn Mawr (Pa.) Summer Institute.

The annual institute, which encourages women to take leadership roles in higher education, helped each participant to better understand her leadership skills, improve her networking capabilities and increase awareness about the university.

“I wanted to do it for my department – geology – to learn how to work better with people,” Roberts said. “I learned to recognize different leadership styles and also how to look at situations from different perspectives.”

Roberts was also one of 18 women who participated in additional sessions as part of the HERS Luce Program for Women in STEM Leadership. They met to create a network for support and encouragement for women in STEM and to develop strategies for advancing a diverse cadre of women into STEM leadership roles.



Due to the inclement weather predicted for Thursday, Oct. 20, the Not In Our Town Peace March has been rescheduled for noon on Thursday, Nov. 17.

However, the NIOT Celebration will still take place as planned, at 4 p.m. Oct. 20 in the Falcon’s Nest at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

“Mistrial,” from the “Criminal Justice?” exhibit
The BGSU Art Galleries is presenting the exhibition “Criminal Justice?” from Oct. 29-Nov. 20 in the Willard Wankelman Gallery at the Fine Arts Center. Curated by BGSU Galleries Director Jacqueline Nathan, the exhibition will feature two activist artists, Carol Jacobsen and Andrea Bowers, whose work investigates the attitudes and biases embedded in the U.S. justice system.

The show will open at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28, with a gallery talk by Jacobsen, an award-winning social documentary artist whose works in video and photography address issues of women’s criminalization and censorship. Her talk will be followed by an opening reception with light refreshments. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
