Translating Equity-Minded Principles into Evaluation ReformTranslating Equity-Minded Principles into Evaluation Reformhttps://www.acenet.edu/Events/Pages/Equity-Principles-Evaluation-Reform.aspxTranslating Equity-Minded Principles into Evaluation Reform<img alt="Photo of woman completing presentation in front of classroom as students at desks applaud" src="/PublishingImages/Document-Tiles/faculty-eval-principles-tile.jpg?RenditionID=9" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Colleges and universities say they want a not only a more diverse faculty, but also faculty members who contribute to mission-critical service work, are high-quality teachers, and who conduct research and scholarship across a range of methods and epistemologies. To recruit and retain faculty members and help them thrive across these domains, evaluation systems must change. This workshop takes an equity-minded approach to faculty evaluation policy reform. Attendees will be​come familiar with equity-minded principles and the research base that supports the reform of faculty evaluation policies in particular areas of faculty work (e.g., integration of diversity, equity, and inclusion criteria; recognition of work-life balance; and evaluation of service, teaching, and engaged scholarship). Attendees will also learn how reform in these areas can enhance the recruitment, retention, and advancement of a diverse faculty. The workshop draws on two recent ACE reports, Translating Equity-Minded Principles into Faculty Evaluation Reform (PDF) and Equity-Minded Reform of Faculty Evaluation (PDF), ​​​and provides concrete examples of policy reform in areas that are primed to promulgate inequities.​ About ACE Workshops Workshops are virtual, in-person, or hybrid active-learning experiences facilitated by top experts that enable higher education leaders to hone new skills, connect with peers, and put knowledge into action. Participants discuss their experiences, complete inquiry assignments, and develop plans that apply knowledge learned to challenges at their institutions. Depending on format, workshops can last anywhere from one to two days or four to eight ​​weeks. <p>​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Colleges and universities say they want a not only a more diverse faculty, but also faculty members who contribute to mission-critical service work, are high-quality teachers, and who conduct research and scholarship across a range of methods and epistemologies.

In order to create truly equitable campuses that are free from sex discrimination, it is critical to deter gender-based violence before it ever happens. Promising practices are emerging from a growing body of research focused on this prevention. Are you committed to implementing data-driven practices and policies to prevent gender-based violence and sexual harassment on campus? Then join a Preventing Gender-Based Harassment and Violence Learning Circle and be part of a group striving to use proven methods to prevent harassment before it ever occurs. This may include creating Coordinated Community Response Teams, utilizing data from high-quality climate surveys, and conducting bystander intervention and other trainings for students. Effective interventions should move a campus toward fair and consistent accountability, and they should also include comprehensive policies that strengthen community engagement and security on campus.​ Learning circle members will identify, share, and help each other advance policies and practices that address this significant issue, including identifying programs that have worked well with students.​​ <p>​​​​​​Despite the high visibility of federal, state, and institutional efforts to respond to gender violence and sexual assault on campuses, the issue of prevention still vexes many higher education administrators.
