Carl Haywood Creates
Faculty Development Fund
MAILED: Nov. 29, 1999|
Dr. Carl Haywood, retired dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, has created a faculty development fund at the university.
Haywood, Eau Claire, created the Iva Naomi Haywood Faculty Development Fund in tribute to his mother, who died earlier this year. The fund will support faculty development projects in the College of Arts and Sciences at UW-Eau Claire as recommended by the Arts and Sciences Curriculum Committee and the dean.
"I wanted to provide some tangible, visible way to support the faculty and to enable them to work with support and in an atmosphere that says they are valuable," Haywood said. "That's the reason we're calling it a faculty development fund. It's to tell the faculty that they are the heart of this university and to tell them they are important."
Haywood said he wanted to honor his mother because she believed that education was the key to a quality life. "She taught me from an early age that education is the key to opening up everything that's ever been known, thought or experienced before," Haywood said. "I wanted to honor her and that concept because I think it's a message that is good for all generations to hear."
The fund was created when Haywood transferred a life insurance policy to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation. The fund eventually will be endowed.
"Dr. Haywood's commitment is both a wonderful tribute to his mother and a reflection of his interest in upgrading and renewing faculty expertise," said Dr. Jack Fistler, president of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation. "We are grateful for his decision to establish this very important fund at UW-Eau Claire."
Individuals are invited to recognize Haywood's years of service to UW-Eau Claire and his recent retirement by contributing to the Iva Naomi Haywood Fund in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
