NOV06Faculty Service Assignments-Learning to Say No- A Panel Session for Women FacultyNOVEMBER 06 2015, 1:00pm LBR - Liberal Arts Hall (06), Stan McKenzie Faculty Commons
When: 11/06/2015 at 1:00pm - 2:00pm.

Service work is an excellent way for faculty to familiarize yourself with the institution and allow you to become better known among your peers.  However, faculty often find it difficult to find the balance between too much service and not enough.  Often the reason new faculty take on too much service is the fear of saying no. This panel session will be facilitated by Dr. Laura Tubbs, Associate Dean in the College of Science and feature seasoned faculty who will share their tips on how and when to say no to service opportunities, being strategic about service assignments and finding that balance between teaching, scholarship and service.
