Institutional Engagement

In addition to our work as teachers and as scholars, we are expected to be citizens of our campus. Sometimes seen as "just service," institutional engagement is an important element of our work and it is a way to become or remain connected with broader aspects of our work life.

Linda McMillan, Provost at Susquehanna University and a leader in ANAC, the Associated New American Colleges, spoke at an ANAC Summer Institute about four elements of our identity as faculty members at comprehensive institutions. 

  1. Our identity as members of our disciplines
  2. Our identity as teachers
  3. Our identity as institutional citizens
  4. Our identity as professionals in higher education

On the right are documents that speak to some of these issues.
