Wiley Executive Invited to Prestigious Oxford Round Table

Marshall, TX – Wiley College executive vice president and provost, Dr. Glenda Carter was recently tapped to take part in the Oxford University Round table on women and social justice.

Glenda Carter, who oversees academic and student affairs, planning and assessment, institutional research and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) compliance, will attend the invitation-only event July 31-August 5, 2011 in Oxford, England.  The Round Table’s official title is “Women and Social Justice: A Persistent Dilemma.”

The Oxford Round Tables promote human advancement and understanding through the improvement of education.  They are a forum for the study of current issues facing state and national systems of education, and each session is made up of a small select group of leaders from both the public and private sectors of several countries.

Topics addressed at the Round Table will include gender equity; discrimination; compensation, tenure and promotion; sexual harassment; and institutional restraints on women’s leadership.

At the Round Table, Carter, along with Suzanne Mayo-Theus, Assistant Professor of Child Development and Family Studies, College of Education and Human Development at Southern University at New Orleans and a Doctoral Candidate at Kansas State University will present “Reestablishing Family Bonds Between Incarcerated Mothers and Their Daughters”, a cases study of the Girl Scouts’ model programs for children of incarcerated parents and the implications of these programs for social change.

“Leaders from all fields will present papers identifying present or future challenges faced by women in the social justice systems,” Carter said.  “Papers will focus on things that have worked or have the potential to work in addressing the myriad needs of women in the social justice system.  I am honored to be invited and excited about the upcoming trip”.

Following the presentation at Oxford, Carter and Mayo-Theus will submit the paper for publication in The Forum on Public Policy: A Journal of the Oxford Round Table.
