WISE@OU is pleased to continue our partnership with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) and offer the following STEM-focused workshop this winter semester:

Balancing STEM Academic Careers and Life Demands - April 7, 12-1:30 p.m. in room 200A Elliott Hall
  • Do you find yourself struggling to balance your academic work and life demands?  Are you looking for tips on how to manage it all?  Join WISE@OU as we discuss strategies that may help faculty balance the demands of their academic career and home life.  This interactive panel discussion will provide faculty with advice to manage the responsibilities of work and life, as well as provide an opportunity for faculty to share experiences and ask questions.  We encourage both untenured and tenured faculty to attend this event.  Lunch will be provided.

Women in Computing Lecture Series

The Computer Science and Engineering department will launch a "Women in Computing" lecture series in 2014.  This initiative was started by Assistant Professor Wenjin Zhou and is sponsored by Atomic Object.  The goal of the lecture series is to encourage female students to choose a CSE major, continue working in computer science, and foster a love for the field.  Featured speakers will include successful female and under-represented computer scientists, business leaders, and entrepreneurs.  Upcoming speakers include Emily Provost (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), Laura Dillion (Michigan State University), Anne Marsan (manager at Atomic Object, Ann Arbor), and Patty Lopez (Platform Applications Engineer at Intel Corporation).  More details on dates of lectures and additional speakers will be posted when available.  If you have any questions about this lecture series, contact Dr. Zhou at wzhou@oakland.edu or visit her website at: http://www.secs.oakland.edu/~wzhou/home.html.


For those who were unable to attend the original events, WISE@OU has created videos of workshops and discussions with both the AAUP and Academic Human Resources (AHR).  These events feature important details about OU's policies and procedures, with a specific focus on the tenure process (see Tenure Workshop videos) and policies related to pregnancy, adoption, sick leaves, and similar situations (see AHR video).

WISE@OU hosts events for newly hired STEM faculty.

In April 2013, the newly hired STEM faculty members gathered for lunch and a discussion of funding opportunities from the National Science Foundation (NSF).  Wenjin Zhou, Assistant Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, had recently attended two NSF conferences that related to funding, and she shared her insights with the group. 

A copy of Professor Zhou's PowerPoint presentation about NSF funding can be found here: NSF Funding Presentation
