Ca marche, as they say over here. Ten committed faculty at Bennett College have volunteered to participate in the first year of our new program. Letters have gone out to sixty in-coming first year students inviting them to enter the program. Six of the ten faculty members have already responded to my email letter of greeting, and when I return to Chapel Hill in a week, I shall set up a meeting with as many of them as are available during this vacation period. Dania Francis, the Duke University advanced doctoral student, has almost completed a draft of the Research Protocol that we shall submit to the Spencer Foundation for approval. Not too bad for a slow summer period when it is so difficult to get anything done in the Academy.
These are early days, of course, but thus far, we seem to be on schedule.
