Accomplishments: Yvonne Arnoult Chair. The Department received $2.3 million gift endowment to create a new chair in Francophone Studies. Recruitment phase ( ). The appointment was made in March In the interim, creation of an Arnoult Seminar in Francophone Writing conducted for undergraduates and graduates by the Guadeloupean poet and novelist, Daniel Maximin (2003, 2004). Fund Raising. Academic departments may engage in select fund raising for targeted projects, such as colloquia, scholarships, student travel, and special events. In collaboration with the LAS Dean and the Director of Development, potential donors were identified from among French Department alumni, foundations, and local philanthropists. Money was raised for an endowed graduate traveling fellowship, for direct mailing of a professional-quality brochure, for graduate recruitment, and for 5 international conferences that enhanced the Program s reputation. Graduate recruitment and increased stipends brought the program into line with the stipend levels at many peer schools. Overseas Giving. A fund raising venue was directed primarily at alumni of our study abroad programs. My hook was that many alumni had had life-changing experiences as study abroad students, and that some would want to give something back to students about to go. Enrollments. Reversing the national trend, the French section saw an increase of 103% in its French majors between Enrollments in French language and literature increased across the boards at 54%.
13 Foreign Study. New exchanges were initiated with the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Lyon) beginning in 1999, one of France s most selective schools aimed at a graduate student at the thesis stage. Another accord was passed with the U. of Lyon-1, aimed at science, engineering, pre-med, and other non-traditional study abroad majors. Our Junior Year Abroad program housed at Reid Hall, begun in the mid-1950s continues to thrive. Language Courses. Arabic languages courses (3-levels) were added to the curriculum, and a 2-semester course in Creole language was also added. The adjuncts teaching the classes were native speakers from the New Orleans community. The courses had enrollments of approximately15-20 students each. New French courses were developed in the area of Media and Oral Performance. Teaching and Technology. As Chair I had a strong commitment to the undergraduate language program. A team of colleagues won a $280,000 grant from the Culpepper Foundation to create a state-of-the-art language laboratory in1997. With the addition of state funding to support a director and a lecture series that brought technology experts to campus, faculty studied how information technology could enhance language teaching and their own scholarly research. Undergraduate Initiatives. Dormant budget lines were opened and used to create a speakers series, an undergraduate essay contest (Maas Prize), a film series, and graduate student conferences. Intellectual Life. Five national and international conferences were organized on such topics as Vanishing Orient: Women in Islam, French Encounters with Louisiana, Creole and Cajun Presence in the South, among others. Spin-offs occurred in both undergraduate and graduate teaching.
