The Balancing Act
Professor Darna Dufour, Anthropology
Professor Erica Ellingson, Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences
Professor Noah Finkelstein, Physics
The "ivory tower" of academe often invokes images of university scholars spending leisurely days immersed in great thoughts. In reality, however, meeting the high expectations and challenges of teaching, scholarship and participation in academic life can leave us exhausted. And this doesn't even start to mention our activities and identities outside of our jobs. This interactive session will provide various perspectives on how the university really operates --- how might faculty infer what is really valued, balance their commitments and still lead a sane life.
|Session I||Thursday 3/19||3:30-5:00 PM|
This event will be held in ATLAS 200.
