A new Director of the WRC at UNC Wilmington?

one can certainly hope.

"I am writing to apply for the position of Director of the WRC (Women's Resource Center) at UNC Wilmington.

I noticed the position advertisement states that minimum requirements include 'tenure in an academic department at UNCW at the associate professor rank, experience in leadership development, and a demonstrated commitment to diversity and equity.' I believe that I am fully qualified for this position. ... While I do not have 'teaching experience in Women's Studies courses' I believe that I have 'a proven track record in collaborating with community agencies that work on behalf of women...'. For example, I organized the 'Run Against Rape' in April of 1995. This event raised money for the Rape Crisis Center with a five kilometer run. ... This fundraiser did not require teenage girls to march across a stage chanting '******.' Nor were ****** lollipops sold to spectators or participants. In short, I raised money to promote the dignity of women without asking them to act like women of ill-repute. ... I am not going to post the f-word or the p-word all over campus on ****** Day. In fact, I am going to cancel the ****** Monologues next year and replace it with the second installment of the Run Against Rape. ... Since my term is for four-years, I will cut the budget of the WRC by 25% per year. This will help students fight the rising cost of tuition by eliminating the WRC at the end of my term. When you consider that a) women are 70% of the student population at this university, and b) they make better grades than men, we don't really need a 'comfort zone' to help them escape from masculine oppression. And, come to think of it, I won't really need this job in four years. By then, I plan to...start a Men's Resource Center."
