Engaged Scholars Roundtable: Work or Philanthropy? Examining How Faculty Spend their Time on the Job

Thursday, January 30, 2014 | Hine Hall 219  | 12 - 1:30 p.m.
Register» | Organizer: the Center for Service Learning and Presenter: Thomas Nelson Laird, School of Education, IU-Bloomington

Building from the notion that faculty give the gift of their time and expertise in many situations as part of their roles at colleges and universities, this roundtable session explores the amount of time faculty spend on activities that are charitable or altruistic at least in part. We will explore how much time faculty report spending on certain activities that have a philanthropic bent (e.g., research with undergraduates, working with undergraduates on activities outside of class, and informal interactions with students outside of class) and discuss faculty characteristics (e.g., race, ethnicity, rank, and field of study) that predict more time on these activities. We will discuss the implications of this work and consider ways to extend the work moving forward.
