How can departments foster fair and equitable faculty workloads?
There is substantial evidence that faculty workload is unequally shared and recognized, with significant implications for satisfaction, productivity, advancement, and retention. But what can departments do to address these inequalities? The Faculty Workload and Rewards Project is a National Science Foundation-funded study to improve equity in how faculty workload is taken up, assigned, and rewarded. Our research examines the conditions, policies and practices that shape equitable distributions of labour, with particular attention to impacts for faculty members of minoritized identities and/or who identify as women.
