RAVENINGS Pierce Hosts Women in Higher Education Leadership Conference L ast spring, FPU welcomed female leaders in higher education to the Rindge campus for the New Hampshire Women in Higher Education Leadership Conference. Nearly 150 women attended the daylong event, which included seminars and discussions about what it's like to be a woman with leading roles in the state's colleges and universities. Professor of English Donna Decker's keynote speech, "Cover Me, I'm Going In," was the story of a woman's experience working in higher education. "Dr. Decker was inspiring," said Caitlin Glennen of Southern New Hampshire University. "She used humor to show how speaking up and taking up space is necessary to become the strongest woman you can be." In hosting conferences like this, the University showcases what Pierce can offer as an event setting. Over the years, FPU has hosted weddings, family reunions and high school proms, as well as conferences and business meetings. With multiple event spaces of different sizes, Pierce has placed itself among the region's premier resources as a conference and meeting site.
