Apologies for cross-postings.


I’m sharing this with a two-fold purpose: First, to encourage you to complete the Teaching and Scholarship Initiative Survey<https://richmond.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3JW1DGKnEZ87D81> to ensure that SPCS instructor voices are included in the University’s new Teaching and Scholarship Initiative; Second, to encourage you to share additional thoughts and ideas with Kate Cassada<mailto:kcassada at richmond.edu>, our SPCS representative on the Teaching and Scholarship committee.

In an earlier message, Sandra introduced the Teaching & Scholarship Initiative. I’ve included the text of that introduction below. Sandra went out of her way at last week’s SPCS Faculty Meeting to assure me that she views SPCS adjunct faculty as part of, not ancillary to, the University faculty. Her perspective is that UR has one faculty, and SPCS adjuncts are among its many members. Her desire to clarify this message, and her willingness to engage with use throughout the SPCS Faculty Meeting, demonstrates a strong commitment to hearing and responding to adjunct voices, and I encourage us to participate in sharing our thoughts and ideas.

I have also chatted with Kate early this week, and she is committed to ensuring that SPCS voices and ideas are deeply interwoven into the work of the Teaching and Scholarship Initiative. As Sandra notes below, the committee will also convene focus groups to gather additional information.

Here’s Sandra’s introductory message from September 10, sent to the AllFaculty-list.

I wanted to let you all know that the work of the Teaching and Scholarship Initiative (TSI) has begun.  For those of you who are not already aware, the TSI is tasked with determining faculty needs in all areas of teaching and scholarship this fall with the goal of proposing a new structure to support faculty that will be launched July 1, 2019.
The committee membership is listed below.
Teaching and Scholarship Initiative Committee Members

  *   Crystal Hoyt (JSLS), Chair

Please cooperate with the committee’s task of information gathering this semester to the extent you are able.  I would encourage all of you to reach out to your school or divisional representative with specific concerns.

Subject: [AllFaculty-list] Teaching and Scholarship Initiative Survey

Good morning everyone,

Below is a link to a survey as part of our ongoing efforts to solicit feedback on the new Teaching and Scholarship Initiative.  Crystal Hoyt and her committee have developed this short survey to  get initial feedback on your teaching and research needs.


This is one part of the committee’s data collection efforts this semester.  They will later be convening focus groups to gather additional information.
Please take the time to fill out the survey; it will only be open for 10 days. Your input now is vital to informing how this project moves forward.
