FORWARD offers September trainings, workshops


The FORWARD project will offer a number of trainings and workshops throughout the month of September.

Ally training

FORWARD Advocates will offer training for male faculty who want to serve as Allies. Ally training is designed to provide male faculty with strategies to help improve the overall climate for all faculty at NDSU and identify ways to better recruit and retain women faculty. The first ally training of the year is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 11, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Memorial Union Rose room. Lunch will be provided. Registration is requested and can be completed by visiting the FORWARD website at

Promotion, tenure and evaluation workshops

The FORWARD project will sponsor workshops on Tuesday, Sept. 17, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Wednesday, Sept. 25, from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union for faculty who serve or will be serving on promotion, tenure and evaluation. 

Current committee members are particularly encouraged to attend one of these sessions. The workshops will include information on promotion, tenure and evaluation policy and procedures, and offer the best practices for evaluating promotion and tenure portfolios illustrated through case studies. In addition, they will offer examples of checklists, rubrics and guidance in reading portfolios. 

The workshops will be presented by Ineke Justitz, associate professor of history, philosophy and religion, and Kevin McCaul, professor of psychology. Registration for either session is requested and can be completed on the FORWARD website at
