October Town Hall Review

From the Dean of the College:

Salem College is building strategic relationships between places involved in academic and student affairs. The College will be working on developing several new Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs), like the pathway to pharmacy currently in place with High Point University. Other MOUs are in place with Elon University, Campbell Law School, and Forsyth Technical Community College.

Welcome to Marinda (Mindy) Bliss, our new Dean of Students!

Dean Bliss will serve in this position for the remainder of the academic year.

From Dean Alford and Robin Campbell, Director of Counseling Services:

There has been a rise of bullying and harassment on campus. Salem takes these allegations very seriously, but there have been false reports made. False reports result in a shortage of time and resources between Dean Alford, Erin Adams, and Public Safety. Students are encouraged to refer to the student handbook and to be aware of the resources available on campus.

From Public Safety:

There has been an increase in car break-ins throughout Winston-Salem. Public Safety recommends the following tips:

  • Don’t leave valuables in your car (even on campus) and do not leave them in a visible location.
  • Roll up windows and lock vehicles
  • Remember to park in your designated area, and register your vehicle by Oct. 15.
From the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM):

The 30-day front campus parking pass raffle begins Oct. 16.
Tickets are going to be sold until Oct. 23 in the Refectory at lunch and dinner. $1 will buy 1 ticket, $5 will buy 10, and $10 will buy 20 tickets.

From Interfaith Council:
