Advancing Equity Through Publicly Engaged Scholarship:
Transforming Faculty Reward Policies & Practices

Monday, September 21, 2020

To serve all members of our society, our colleges and universities must put Equity at the center of their work, not just as a desired outcome, but also as integral to the process of education – how we do what we do. To serve their public purpose, our higher education institutions must also commit deeply to Civic and Community Engagement in teaching and research.  Our faculty reward systems (including promotion, tenure or long-term contracts for non-tenure-track faculty, and post-tenure review) shape whom we attract, support, and retain as faculty.  This symposium will explore how faculty reward systems can be structured to support both of these critical and intersecting themes in higher education–Equity and Public Engagement.  How might we transform the culture, policies and practices of our reward systems to recruit and retain the faculty we need?  Sessions throughout the day will begin to address these questions and will be customized to faculty and campus executives who are essential to the process.

Additional details, including registration, will be available shortly.
