May 22 GO HERC Spring Meeting a Success!
GO HERC members from the state of Oregon and southwest Washington gathered on the Willamette University campus in Salem May 22 for the GO HERC Spring Meeting.
Eileen Edmunds, Managing Partner and Senior Consultant at ModernThink was the featured speaker. She presented on “Understanding Employee Engagement Trends to Improve Recruitment and Engagement on Your Campus,” and “Strategies for Title IX Data Collection.” Edmunds spoke on how the trends reflected in the data are manifested on participating college and university campuses and provided insight into how the engagement experience, or lack thereof, of certain groups of employees on campuses affects an institution’s ability to recruit and retain talented individuals.

Female faculty at colleges and universities should receive automatic corrections on their teaching evaluation scores because of inherent gender bias in such measurements, Cornell University associate professor Sara Pritchard asserts in this commentary. Studies have shown that female and minority faculty are consistently rated lower by students than their male peers, Pritchard writes.
