Often these conversations are fleeting commentaries on what is wrong with the administration or on trustee interference, spoken hastily but earnestly while waiting for a committee meeting to begin. But these concerns are also the focus of various task forces, commissions, and councils–all wrestling with not only how best to explain what faculty do with their time, but also how to respond to increased expectations for faculty work.
