Live your values. Transform the academy.


HuMetricsHSS is an initiative that creates and supports values-enacted frameworks for understanding and evaluating all aspects of the scholarly life well-lived and for promoting the nurturing of these values in scholarly practice. Comprised of individuals working in academic and nonprofit academic–adjacent sectors, the HuMetricsHSS team is committed to establishing humane indicators of excellence in academia, focused particularly on the humanities and social sciences (HSS).

You can find more about what we do under Our Work and an example framework and explanation of our values process in Values. History gives an overview of our initiative from its birth at the TriangleSCI workshop in 2016 through to the present. If you are interested in running your own values framework workshop, see our Workshop Kit.

The HuMetricsHSS Initiative is generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
