Nine Theses about the Profession for Discussion: R1 Faculty Participation in Regional Conferences is an Ethical Mandate

Submitted by syntaxfactory on August 4, 2015 - 2:01pm

Recognizing that teaching loads across institutions typically do not signify that faculty at research institution (with 2/1 or 2/2 loads) do not work _less_ than their colleagues at 4/4 institution, just that they work differently (with more time for research)...

Nevertheless, it is the ethical obligation of those with 2/2 teaching loads to participate in the planning and execution of regional conferences typically attended by folks from smaller regional schools. To refuse to participate in those regional conferences does violence to the organic wholeness of the profession.
