Heads and Chairs: What you need to know about nominating students for the NAGT/USGS Cooperative Summer Fellowship Program
May 10 2023 We are making changes to the student nomination process in order to broaden access to the long-running NAGT/USGS Cooperative Summer Fellowship program, and department chairs and program heads will serve a critical role in the new process. In this webinar, we'll share the history and successes of the fellowship program, describe the changes in the community that led us to develop a new nomination process, and walk participants through the new nomination process and what makes a strong nomination.

Developing evaluation systems that value diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts: an active workshop for the geosciences
May 2 2023 This workshop is aimed at helping the geosciences answer recent calls to action by revising promotion and tenure (P&T) and evaluative systems to clearly value and reward diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts. In this workshop, we will discuss geoscience faculty perceptions and engagement in DEI work, as well as perceptions of DEI work within the context of evaluative systems from recent nation-wide interview and survey results. Participants will be guided to work collaboratively and develop mechanisms by which they can meaningfully value DEI work within annual evaluations and P&T policies.
