[HOWL] Campus Events for the week of Nov. 29th
MESSAGE FROM THE SBP [PAUL NOLAN]
Good evening, Wolfpack! Apologies for the late Howl, it’s been a long week and it’s not near over! I also took time to relieve stress and go swimming today – remember to find those healthy outlets, especially in high-stress times around finals.
I also write with some sorrow in my heart tonight. As you may have heard, there was a tragedy at Ohio State University. I’ve reached out to their Student Body President and offered our support and community condolences during this difficult time. You can read a statement from their SBP/SBVP here.
Furthermore, the UNC System lost a great leader in Chancellor Debra Saunders-White at NCCU who passed on Saturday by means of cancer. You can read a joint statement from the Chancellor, Dr. Jeannette Moore (Chair of Faculty Senate), Angkana Bode (Chair of Staff Senate), and I here.
I know it’s not the most upbeat Howl, but I firmly believe it’s my responsibility to promulgate important events that affect us in the community of higher education.
Lastly, I received well-balanced feedback and results from the Howl format last week. I’ve done both this week! Those of you who do statistics things, let me know what you think of these charts – thanks!
