2022-2023 Leadership Committee

Specific Charge

Expanding frameworks for new faculty development. The Leadership Committee is charged with surveying and evaluating new faculty positions–fellowships, visiting positions, etc–aimed toward diversifying faculty and expanding teaching, research, and scholarship on issues of social and environmental justice, racial equity, and community engagement. Specifically, the committee is asked to provide a survey of existing and new faculty positions that fall within these parameters and evaluate their efficacy in advancing young contingent faculty into tenure-track or other forms of permanent teaching positions. If possible, the committee should also evaluate the impact of these positions on curricular reform.
