5d. Modeling Best Professional Practices in Service
5d1. What types of service are expected as part of the institutions’ and the unit’s mission?
Service is a central part of UWW’s mission and all professional education faculty are expected to perform service activities as part of the promotion and tenure process. UWW’s rules for promotion and tenure state that all faculty must achieve a record of service to the profession, to the university community, and to the public through various activities that take place outside the classroom. To assume the rank of professor, faculty must show a contributing role within these service activities.
5d2. In what types of service activities are faculty engaged? Provide examples of faculty service related to practice in P-12 schools and service to the profession at the local, state, national and international levels (e.g. through professional associations). What percentage of the faculty is actively involved in these various types of service activities?
Faculty in the College of Education are involved in a variety of projects including grant writing, serving on editorial boards or in leadership positions in professional organizations, volunteering in classrooms, serving as faculty advisors to student and campus organizations, acting as consultants to local schools, providing training sessions for professional development, and participating on department, college, university, community, state, national, and international committees. For examples of service activities, please see the electronic documents room for copies of faculty vita.
