THE FACULTY WORKLOAD AND REWARDS PROJECT
O'Meara UMD Mall
Dr. KerryAnn O’Meara, Principal Investigator
Faculty Workload and Rewards Project
 

The Faculty Workload and Rewards Project will engage departments in a collaborative change process to solve problems of overloaded, unequitable, invisible and unrewarded faculty workloads. Funded by the National Science Foundation ADVANCE Program as an action-research project and knowledge-sharing network, the Faculty Workload and Rewards Project will engage STEM and Social Science academic departments from three state systems of higher education (Maryland, North Carolina and Massachusetts) in a three year effort to better understand, dialogue about, make transparent, and initiate change around faculty workloads and rewards. This project builds from research and interdisciplinary scholarship and provides a structure for learning how equity issues arise, using data to inform new organizational policies and practices, developing consensus around department priorities, and evaluating progress toward department workload objectives.
