Dual Career

Tasks in process.

  • Telephone survey of Search Chairs regarding current practice.  I expect results any day now.
  • An electronic survey has been drafted for Deans and Chairs to determine current state centered around interview and negotiation phase.  This will be going out soon.
  • Patty Sotirin will be holding some focus groups for partners currently slated for early March.
  • A Kaizen has been proposed to standardize process for partners of tenure track faculty who desire a faculty appointment.

Climate Survey

Michigan Tech desires to hold another University Climate SURVEY of which Jill Hodges and Beth Lunde are the leads. This will include all faculty, staff (union and non-union), and students. The committee is leaning toward hiring externally to do this study and based upon discussions held in the Unit Climate Group (AMP-UP) is also leaning toward a confidential survey instead of an anonymous survey. A confidential survey will get at the unit issues in a way that an anonymous survey will not.
