Working at a University I learn something new every day! Yesterday, I learned about The OpEd Project and their partnership with UVA. In a meeting, It was shared that a study found that 97% of op-eds by scholars in the Wall Street Journal were written by men. The goal of the OpEd Project is to empower new voices to join in the public conversations happening today.
In partnership with the OpEd Project, UVA has created the Public Voices Fellowship. They have had 2 cohorts of faculty engaged in the program and are getting ready to open the application up to their third cohort. There is an impressive list of OpEds that have been published – check them out here.
What an amazing way to support faculty development and lift the voices of some of the greatest minds on Grounds.
