Conversations about Life in the Profession
Join us for conversations about faculty life to build community and collective mentoring as colleagues adjust to life at Loyola, in the profession, and around the Baltimore region. For first-year faculty, these conversations also serve as a yearlong orientation and complement the individual pairing in the campus mentoring program.
Beginning in fall 2020, mentoring activities that had been part of the former "Finding the Path to Full" series will be part of the "This Faculty Life" series.
Open to all faculty unless otherwise noted.
Care Work and the Faculty Work Load, 3:15 - 4:15 p.m., (online)
The demands of care work are a significant stressor for many Loyola faculty members. Pre-pandemic those of us with significant caregiving responsibilities faced issues like dealing with illnesses during the semester, struggling to maintain personal wellbeing and advocating for family friendly policies at the departmental level. During the pandemic the demands on faculty with children and elder care responsibilities have increased dramatically. This session will give faculty a chance to communally process the current situation and to share ideas for how to make the faculty work load more compatible with necessary and valuable care work.
- Mavis Biss, associate professor of philosophy
- Timothy Clark, associate professor of mathematics and statistics
