Advocate Spotlight: Craighead committed to Advocate role
A highly active Advocate in the Advocates & Allies for Equity initiative, Sam Craighead, manager of Learning Experience for Office of Distance Education and eLearning (ODEE), became an Advocate because he was looking for ways to be more directly involved in inclusion efforts in his day-to-day work.
Craighead acknowledges that discussing male privilege is not always easy, but this is how change happens. “The conversations we have are sometimes difficult or uncomfortable, but I’ve seen ‘aha’ moments in every facilitation I have been part of, and that is encouraging,” Craighead said. “Culture change is slow, the more people participate and acknowledge a need to change, the sooner this ripple turns into a wave.”

Strategies for interrupting Imposter Syndrome
The Women’s Place and partners hosted an interactive presentation on impostor syndrome in higher education led by internationally recognized expert and author Dr. Valerie Young this past October. The dynamic, well-attended session was packed full of practical strategies for interrupting impostor syndrome on campus such as:
“The solution is not to wait until you no longer feel afraid, insecure, anxious, inadequate or undeserving. The solution is to change your thoughts and behaviors first, and let your feelings catch up later.”
– Dr. Valerie Young
New preferred last name feature
The Office of the Chief Information Officer has launched a new “preferred last name” feature that will allow students, staff and faculty to maintain and display a preferred last name in several university systems (Carmen, email, my.osu.edu). Those who choose to use this feature may prefer to be known by a different or shorter last name for professional and cultural reasons.
The preferred last name feature accommodates employees and students who have/use multiple surnames, after marriage to maintain a consistent professional identity, for example. Legal names will continue to be used on all official academic and financial documentation (transcripts, Statement of Account, Buck ID, diploma, payroll, etc.).
