Butler Center to hold discussion on faculty workloads and rewards

The Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence is presenting a panel of speakers who will discuss their research that is focused on faculty workloads and rewards.

The panel will be held 3-5 p.m. March 8 in Purdue Memorial Union's Anniversary Drawing Room. Faculty, postdocs and graduate students are invited to attend.

The speakers will be:

* KerryAnn O’Meara, professor of higher education, director of the ADVANCE Program for Inclusive Excellence, affiliate faculty in women’s studies and associate dean for faculty affairs and graduate studies in the College of Education at the University of Maryland, College Park. O'Meara's research examines faculty careers and academic rewards systems with a particular focus on organizational practices that support and limit the full participation of women and underrepresented minority faculty and the legitimacy of diverse forms of scholarship in the academy.

* Sharon Bird, professor and head of sociology at Oklahoma State University. Bird was formerly a program director at the National Science Foundation (2016-17) in the Education and Human Resources Directorate, working primarily with the NSF ADVANCE Program and the Alliances for Graduate Education Program. Her research examines institutions of higher education and initiatives for enhancing the recruitment and advancement of women and underrepresented minority faculty and students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

There are 40 seats available. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. March 2 and registration can be completed online. Refreshments will be provided. For more information, contact Tamara Hoffman at hoffm100@purdue.edu or visit www.purdue.edu/butler
