Howard University Earns Record 10 Nominations for
2013 HBCU Awards

-Jackson State to Host Annual Celebration Recognizing HBCU Excellence-

Howard University has secured a record 10 nominations and vie for the title of ‘HBCU of the Year’ in the 2013 HBCU Awards on June 28 in Jackson, MS beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Crowning winners in the fields of leadership, arts, athletics, research, and community engagement, the HBCU Awards is the first and only event to recognize the influence and impact of HBCUs on American culture.

 “The success of historically black colleges and universities are a direct reflection of the success of African-Americans and African-American communities nationwide,” says Jarrett L. Carter, Sr., Founder and Executive Director  of the Center for HBCU Media Advocacy, Inc. “The HBCU Awards is a moment of celebration and recognition for scholars and supporters of HBCUs, but more than that, it is a chance for all Americans to cheer on institutions and individuals maintaining a legacy of enrichment for the nation and the world.”

More than 600 entries submitted by administrators, students, alumni, faculty and supporters of HBCUs throughout the country were narrowed to the list of finalists, representing 45 public and private four-year historically black colleges and universities from around the nation. Finalists were selected by Center leadership based upon a record of achievement and media coverage in local, regional or national outlets. Winners are selected by a panel of HBCU students, alumni and administrators, and will be announced on the evening of the ceremony.

 

Howard leads several HBCUs with more than seven nominations, including 2012 HBCU of the Year Winner Alcorn State University, Hampton University and Winston-Salem State University.

The HBCU Awards will be the keynote event of the inaugural National HBCU Media Week, presented by Jackson State University. The week will also feature the annual HBCU Media Summit, a conference that brings together working journalists, HBCU presidents, faculty and students to dialog about media literacy and development at historically black colleges. 

 

HBCU Media Week is produced by Carter Media Enterprises LLC, publishing company of the HBCU Digest, and a portion of proceeds raised during HBCU Media Week will be donated to the Center for HBCU Media Advocacy Inc. in support of media training, scholarships and grants to historically black colleges and universities.

Schools.com: How Do Working Women Define "Success?"


How Do Working Women Define "Success?"

New research from career networking site LinkedIn provides a glimpse into how women globally define career success -- and whether they believe they have achieved it.

According to Forbes, the new survey entitled "What Women Want @ Work" suggests that by and large, women feel as though they are succeeding in the workplace although it differs by country:
• 77 percent of all respondents from across the globe said they consider their careers to be successful
• 69 percent of women in India, for example, said they are successful, which is a significant increase over previous years
• Only 7 percent of women in Italy report that they have succeeded in the workplace

How women define this success varies, of course. LinkedIn's research highlights how this definition has changed over time: For instance, 5 to 10 years ago:
• Most women (56 percent) said success at work meant earning a high salary

Today, however:
• 63 percent of respondents said they define success as achieving an ideal balance between their careers and personal lives
• 57 percent of respondents said they think it is possible to have children and lead successful careers

The LinkedIn survey also identified challenges that respondents believe impact their career: Globally, the top three include:
• No clear career path (51 percent)
• No investment in professional development (47 percent)
• Pay inequity (44 percent)

As for the future of women, professionally speaking, 80 percent of respondents said that a flexible work environment is the most important factor in determining success for the next generation of women workers.

Inside Higher Ed Insider Update May 2013


 

 

   May 2013
Welcome to your May 2013 Insider Update -- the newsletter for readers of Inside Higher Ed. Once a month we send a quick rundown on what's happening at Inside Higher Ed: events, accomplishments and a bit of fun.
 
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
 
April's best-read article was Paul Fain's in-depth reporting on two new competency-based education programs that up the ante for a potential disruption to higher education. Ry Rivard's article about renewed criticism of anti-plagiarism software from the Conference on College Composition and Communication drew the most comments of any story on the site last month. According to the CCCC resolution, "plagiarism detection services can compromise academic integrity by potentially undermining students' agency as writers, treating all students as always already plagiarists, creating a hostile learning environment, shifting the responsibility of identifying and interpreting source misuse from teachers to technology, and compelling students to agree to licensing agreements that threaten their privacy and rights to their own intellectual property." Whew! Lots of comments for Scott Jaschik's coverage of a video that went viral on conservative websites last month -- the Fox headline: "USC Political Science Professor Tells Students Republicans Are ‘Stupid and Racist.' " The article notes some context that was missing elsewhere. (For more on professorial politics, check out our Book with Buzz below.)
We've just published the May edition of our cartoon caption contest. Click here to add your suggestions for this month's cartoon, and cast a vote for our last contest.
BOOK WITH BUZZ -- Author Neil Gross discusses analysis that may frustrate some on the left and on the right in his new book Why Are Professors Liberal and Why Do Conservatives Care? Click here to read the article (as well as all Inside Higher Ed's books coverage).

You can also sign up to join editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman as they review the history, frame the context, and look to the future of MOOCs in a free webinar on Thursday, May 30, at 2 p.m. Eastern. The MOOC Moment booklet and webinar are made possible in part by the generous financial support of Academic Partnerships.
OUT AND ABOUT --  Scott Jaschik, Paul Fain and Ry Rivard started May in Palo Alto, Calif., for a meeting of the Education Writers Association.
Scott will be in Chicago May 13 for a British Council event to speak to visiting university leaders from Britain.  May 14-16 Scott travels to San Diego where he will be giving a talk and moderating a session at "Learning Impact 2013: An Insider's View of Technology Impact Across K-20 Education."
Kathlene Collins will be in Austin, TX, May 15-17 for the annual PeopleAdmin client conference.
Scott will be moderating a discussion on the future of higher education at the annual conference of the New America Foundation in Washington, DC, on May 18.
Sharon Salang and Rick Plotkin visit Columbus, OH, May 19-21 for the Midwestern Region conference of the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR).
Doug Lederman will moderate a panel at a meeting on the role of technology in higher education at Princeton University on May 22.
SERVICE NOTE -- Inside Higher Ed's offices will be closed on Monday, May 27 in honor of Memorial Day. There will be no Daily News Update e-mail published that day.
RECENT VISITORS -- Spring failed to arrive in DC last month, but lots of interesting higher ed folks brightened the Inside Higher Ed offices. Visitors included Bentley University, AASCU, Pearson, University of Southern Mississippi, APLU, ACCT, Quality Matters, PRSA, and Regent University. We're always happy to host higher education leaders in our D.C. offices. Contact Scott at scott.jaschik@insidehighered.com or Doug at doug.lederman@insidehighered.com to plan a visit.

Education Abroad -- Best Practices in Health and Safety
An Inside Higher Ed Webinar
May 23, 2 p.m. Eastern
Inside Higher Ed presents Education Abroad: Best Practices in Health and Safety, a webinar with Stacey R. Bolton Tsantir, the chair of the Health and Safety Subcommittee of NAFSA: Association of International Educators. Stacey will provide a broad overview of best practices for colleges, including those based on the Interassociational Good Practices and the Forum on Education Abroad Standards. The webinar will feature the kinds of questions colleges need to ask to develop good policies so they can continue to encourage study abroad.
The webinar costs $199 and will consist of a 30-minute presentation and a 30-minute question period. There is no conference call required for this event -- the entire presentation, including audio, is delivered via the web. You may gather as many colleagues as you like to view the webinar via one monitor, but only one login per registration will be allowed. This event will be captioned for the deaf and hard of hearing by SpeechText Access.
 
The MOOC Moment
A free webinar from Inside Higher Ed
May 30, 2 p.m. Eastern
Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have become the talk of academe, with many colleges and universities debating whether they should start them or join one of the consortiums offering the courses. A recent Gallup survey of college and university presidents found that these leaders view MOOCs with skepticism. Faculty responses range from fear for their jobs, to cynicism, to enthusiasm, to inspiration. Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman as they review the history, frame the context, and look to the future of MOOCs in this free webinar.
Read up before the webinar -- click here to download a free copy of  “The MOOC Moment,” our booklet of forward-looking articles and essays about MOOCs, with enthusiasts and skeptics alike examining curricular and financial issues.

"The MOOC Moment" booklet (and webinar) is made possible in part by the generous financial support of Academic Partnerships. Your registration information will be shared with the company.
 
Just Flip It -- From the Front Lines of the Flipped Classroom
A free webinar from Sonic Foundry
May 21, 12 p.m. Eastern
Clemson University Professor Ralph Welsh introduced flipped instruction to his classes three years ago, redesigning and refining his courses over time, and putting the onus on the student to come to class already having watched the lectures and ready to engage in conversation.  
During that time he’s met and overcome challenges and reset his teaching style to rave reviews from students. Join Ralph as he presents a how-to guide for introducing flipped instruction, and shares lessons learned along the way including:
  • How to set and manage student expectations
  • His process of taking in feedback, evaluating it and re-introducing new methods into the classroom
  • Tips on how to educate your colleagues on your new workload and get your department on board with what you’re doing
Just Flip It -- From the Front Lines of the Flipped Classroom is presented by Sonic Foundry and is not an editorial offering of Inside Higher Ed.

Dr. Arthur F. Kirk, Jr., president of Saint Leo University, shares how the school promoted student success by adapting methods from traditional education models, including degree progress check-ups, an early-alert process to identify at-risk students and a robust academic advising process.
