Research Trip: MSU
October 16, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 17, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
To advance substantial culture change in the academy, we must also understand the individual pressures and contexts of evaluations within universities. To that end, the HuMetricsHSS team will be arranging meetings with deans and other administrators, university research evaluators, and impact librarians at all BTAA institutions and compiling and examining their institutional mission statements, statements of diversity and inclusion, and other “values-driven” documents already produced by BTAA universities. This research, once aggregated and anonymized, will form the basis of a report that will help illuminate, for example, what pressures a specific tenure committee is facing that prevent them from rewarding scholarship they find valuable.
