9:00 - 10:00 Keynote Address by KerryAnn O'Meara
The morning keynote will explore what is meant by service, its different forms, values and impacts - who is most involved in different forms of service and why. It will explore some of the barriers to recognizing service in higher education and how they might be overcome, including how service might be better assessed and recognized through promotion and tenure and contract renewal. The benefits of "taking service seriously" will be discussed, benefits for the professional lives of faculty, for their students, the institution and the public.
10:00 - 10:15 Short break
10:15-11:15 Breakout Session lead by Dr. O'Meara
Guiding questions: What kinds of service have you been involved in recently? What have been some of the benefits of this work for you, students, your programs, and the institution? How is service assessed and counted in your department/college? How much does it count? Should it count differently, more, less?
