Notes from Meeting at University of X re: Faculty Leadership Policy Briefs Thursday, February 12, 2009 Attending: About 10-15 senior administrators, members of faculty leadership, and members of the Board of Trustees from University of X First Presenter: Hannah Beers (Faculty Leadership) Topic: Commitment to Teaching Hannah discussed what role she felt the faculty should play at University of X. She felt the faculty should have responsibilities outside the classroom such as advising, research, and leadership roles in extracurricular activities. Hannah expressed that she believes the faculty should interview prospective students, giving them an overview of courses and more direction. She felt one negative of this plan could be dealing with prospective students who are undecided in pursuing any particular major of interest. Hannah also felt that teachers should offer public e-mails and office hours. Hannah felt that the faculty should have leadership roles in clubs. She felt that a positive of this would be that the faculty would get a better understanding of their students outside the classroom. She felt a possible negative effect would be bias towards certain students, and she felt that this bias would be hard to control. Lastly, Hannah feels that the faculty should be active in research.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
