ACADEMIC SENATE MEMBERS

SUBJECT:    Senate Task Force on Faculty Service

Dear Colleagues,

UCSD's Senate Council has formed a task force to study faculty service--its culture, expectations, structures, procedures, distribution, and place within the academic reward system.

Here are some examples of questions that the task force may consider:

What counts as university "service"?

How should service be rewarded?

What incentives exist or should exist for service, especially service to the Academic Senate?

How adequately do we socialize new colleagues to the campus tradition of service and shared governance?

Members of the Task Force are:

M. Salah Baouendi, Mathematics
Julian Betts, Economics
Nigel Calcutt, Pathology
Catherine Constable, SIO/IGPP
Paul Libby, MAE
Odile Mathieu-Costello, Medicine
Nicholas Spitzer, Neurobiology
Stephen Cox, Literature (Chair)
We hope, if you have comments or advice on issues relevant to the task force, you will convey them to its members. You are especially welcome to communicate with the Chair at sdcox@ucsd.edu.


Sincerely,

Jean-Bernard Minster,br> Chair, San Diego Division, Academic Senate

Stephen Cox
Chair, Task Force on Faculty Service
