Selected from ECU were Susan Beck-Frazier, associate dean in the College of Fine Arts and Communication; Lisa Clough, professor of biology; Holly Hapke, professor of geography; education professors Cheryl McFadden and Carol A. Brown; Tracy Gurnsey, autopsy facility manager and medical laboratory supervisor in Pathology at the Brody School of Medicine; and Kathryn Verbanac, professor of surgery at the Brody School of Medicine.

Verbanac was elected to serve a 3-year term on the BRIDGES Advisory Board.

Over the course of four weekends in Chapel Hill, N.C., participants hone their leadership and communication skills while developing a stronger understanding of the academy. The program helps female university faculty and administrators identify, understand and move into leadership roles within higher education.
