The work of the DCI over the past year has been in large part due to the exceptional efforts of our DCI Coordinator, Carla Cole. Carla has been both in charge of managing our logistics, scheduling and planning throughout the year as well as contributing significantly to our work with our Fellows, our strategic planning, and the design of our programs. But alas, Carla will be leaving us soon to begin a full-time faculty position at Central Piedmont Community College. Her departure is bitter-sweet – we are excited for her as she takes on this new opportunity but are sad that it will take her away from us.
In light of Carla’s critical contributions to the DCI, we have initiated a search for an Assistant Director of the DCI. Priority review of applications will begin on September 26, 2022, and will continue until the position is filled. If you know anyone who might be interested, please forward the job description for the position on to them. The Assistant Director reports to the DCI Faculty Director and is responsible for the development, implementation, and assessment of the initiative’s programs and components. These include efforts to create opportunities for productive dialogue and deliberation in diverse classroom settings, outside of the classroom, and in the community.
