UNIVERSITY CONTRIBUTIONS: NARRATIVE & SUPPORTING MATERIALS (20%)
Educator Preparation Program (EPP) Committee and Teacher Education Advisory Committee (TEAC)
As an Assistant Professor in Teacher Education, I have the privilege of serving on two very active committees that meet every other week (respectively) - the Educator Preparation Program (EPP) Committee and Teacher Education Advisory Committee (TEAC). The EPP Committee serves to ensure that Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction mandates are met within and across all departments that are involved with educator preparation. TEAC serves the Education Preparation Program in an advisory and consultative role to strengthen content areas and other programming and evaluation activities in response to DPI expectations (click on graphic at right for more explanation).
Liaison - Social Inquiry
For the reasons discussed above, I also serve as the liaison between the Educational Leadership Department and the Social Inquiry Department. In this capacity, attend their monthly department meetings and provide pertinent information and reporting between the two. This has the added effect of furthering my ability to work with those teacher candidates who are majoring or minoring in the social sciences.
Search and Screen Committee
I am presently serving on a search and screen committee that is seeking a new tenure track faculty member in Special Education at the graduate level, to begin Fall of 2018.
Student Misconduct Hearing Committee
This year, I was assigned to my first University Committee - the Student Misconduct Hearing Committee. Per UWS Chapter 14.09 and 17.13, when a student chooses to appeal the decision of the academic or nonacademic misconduct hearing committee to the Chancellor, the Chancellor may remand the matter for consideration by a different hearing committee. The Student Misconduct Hearing Committee serves as that second hearing committee. It is called together by the Chancellor when needed and as instructed in UWS Chapters 14 and 17.
