Academic Freedom & Title IX: Balancing Competing Interests (Private)

Academic Freedom & Title IX:  Balancing Competing Interests
Wednesday, September 16, 2015
1:30 pm – 3:30pm

Dahlonega: LTC 382 

To RSVP, please email rsvp.ctll@ung.edu.

Facilitated by Peter Lake, Charles A. Dana Chair and Director of Center for Excellence in Higher Education Law and Policy at Stetson University
Opening remarks and Title IX overview by David Marling, UNG Title IX Coordinator

Invited leadership will join the Provost at this webinar for UNG leadership. These speakers will facilitate a consideration of Title IX response systems and methods for enlisting faculty support for the mission of Title IX.

Title IX response systems and academic freedom can co-exist and be mutually supportive but not without careful attention to the balancing of sometimes competing interests.

How can we manage “trigger terms” in the classroom and run Title IX grievance systems without disrupting legitimate pedagogical goals and chilling core academic activities, including speaking on matters of public importance in public forums?
Peter Lake will offer detailed and practical suggestions on how to improve Title IX response systems while protecting and promoting academic freedom.

Academic Leadership Meeting – Academic Affairs Forum, The Dean’s Dashboard, Part 2 (private event)

Presenter: David Godow

Faculty are the institution’s most precious resource, and their activities largely determine the success or failure of the institutional mission. However, most faculty utilization policies fail to focus faculty effort on the highest high-value work that promotes institutional goals.

This webconference will discuss how institutions are making more effective use of faculty time without crude, politically unacceptable “productivity improvement” policies like increasing teaching load or course size caps. It will also explore how metrics are being integrated into unit-level strategic planning and budgeting processes to create faculty buy-in for data-informed decision making

Learn how to ensure departments are maximizing use of available instructional capacity, better align faculty workload policy with institutional priorities, engage units more fully in “data-informed decision making” by connecting use of metrics with their own goals.

Academic Leadership Meeting – Academic Affairs Forum, The Dean’s Dashboard, Part 1 (private event)

Presenter: David Godow

As budget pressures increase, academic units must become more conscious of whether their resource allocation decisions—from faculty to classrooms—are advancing their goals. This webconference will identify the metrics and tools progressive deans are using to maximize course scheduling efficiency, as well as common curricular design problems that “bake” inefficiency into academic programs.

Learn how to identify and size the opportunity for section reduction and course elimination,  estimate section demand and correct supply-demand misalignment during scheduling, assess the efficiency of major and gen-ed curricula.
