Envisioning the Future Academy

The HuMetricsHSS Initiative is inviting you to Envisioning the Future Academy, a virtual event on May 9th and 10th, 2024. We are currently accepting both applications for panelists and registration for attendees.

This virtual event will bring together scholars, administrators, and activists at the forefront of creating a more supportive, equitable, just, and values-driven academy. Institutional transformation can be slow and difficult, and yet increasingly we see examples of successful growth, ranging from formally recognizing a broader range of academic work, creating stronger working conditions for contingent faculty and staff, rethinking library collections policies and practices, and transforming policies that allow for stronger faculty governance.

In order to apply to present, please fill out this application form with a description of the transformative work you’re engaged in at your institution and the ways in which you imagine creating a future academy to be more supportive, equitable, and just. If you are selected, the HuMetricsHSS team will group you with others working on similar topics to form the panels. If you are a part of a larger initiative, please select one member of your team to participate.

The events will be recorded and released on the HuMetricsHSS website so that those unable to attend live will still be able to join the conversation.

This event is open to the public, but requires preregistration. There will be held in two sessions, each running from 2PM ET to 5PM ET on each day.
