Monday, May 20, 2013

Carol McNulty, UNCW Watson College of Education, has been selected for participation in the 2013 Higher Education Resource Services Denver Summer Institute. HERS is a leadership development program for female administrators in higher education.

McNulty serves as Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs and is a faculty member in the Department of Elementary, Middle Level and Literacy Education. She holds a Ph.D. in Elementary Education from the University of Georgia and a bachelor of arts in Elementary Education and Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Kenneth Teitelbaum, Dean of the Watson College of Education, states, "Carol is an outstanding colleague in all the right ways. She has a very positive temperament and is able to deal with challenging personnel and student issues with a level of calmness and firmness that greatly helps to resolve difficult situations. She is exceptionally helpful to the efforts of our college."

Since 1972, HERS has helped advance women leaders by supporting their contributions to their respective academic disciplines and organizations. Participants represent a range of ethnic groups and experience in higher education, national organizations, government and foundations.

"I am thrilled to be selected to participate in this intensive professional development program and hope to improve my understanding of transformational leadership to benefit our institution, and ultimately, the landscape of higher education," says McNulty. "I am so appreciative of the support that Provost Denise Battles and others have provided to facilitate my involvement in this meaningful experience with talented, collaborative and diverse women in higher education."

McNulty will travel to Denver in July to participate in the HERS Institute, an intensive 12-day curriculum which pairs participants with HERS faculty and alumnae to develop the professional development plans and networks.
