ERM Announcements, January 15, 2022

Dear ERM members,

I hope each of you are doing well. I’ve been back at work for the past two weeks—it’s been a bumpy re-entry as I have adjusted to life after sabbatical as well as a number of additional work responsibilities. Honestly, it feels more like a month than just two weeks since I last sent out our ERM announcements.

I’ve also be grappling with the realities that many of you are facing about rising COVID numbers, decisions about teaching modalities, student needs, and the lack of childcare. I am sending commiseration and a virtual hug.

On Monday, my university is observing the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, which is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service. This day is not only to honor the legacy of King but also to focus on the issues of civil rights and continued racism, highlights the use of nonviolence to promote change, and is a call for people to engage in public service. As you think about this day, I encourage you to not only take a pause from work but also to consider how you might serve or educate yourself about King’s legacy or anti-racism. I’ll be reading some books about King from our local library with my toddler and donating to The King Center. I’d love to hear if you are doing anything in particular as well!

All my best,
Allison

ERM Announcements, January 3, 2022

Dear ERM members,

Happy New Year! I hope that the break has treated you well and provided some rest and recuperation from the previous term. I’m back in the office after a semester away for sabbatical. I was a little grumpy about the early start to the semester, the cold weather (hello high of 30 °F), and having to move my stuff back into my office. But, now that I’ve gotten settled back into the space, I’m realizing how nice it is to have a dedicated workspace, and that despite all of the uncertainty surrounding the start of the semester, I am looking forward to getting back into a routine.

I wish each of you a better year than last and health and safety!

All my best,
Allison

General Announcements

CALL FOR VOLUNTEER: Delegate Nomination to the Interdivisional Town Hall Planning Committee

Each Town Hall Meeting addresses a timely topic through a bottom-up ideation process, focusing on topics that are of current and/or pressing interest to a wide range of ASEE members. For example, when ABET released the first draft of the current Engineering Criteria, the 2016 Town Hall served as an interactive way to crowdsource feedback that was then compiled and sent to ABET leadership (and yes, it did have an impact). Each year’s Planning Committee determines the Town Hall topic for the upcoming Conference and then helps to organize the event, which generally attracts approximately 200-300 ASEE members.

For many years, the Town Hall Meeting was sponsored by ASEE’s Interdivisional Cooperation Committee; now, the planning is transitioning to a PIC-level committee format where each division can appoint one delegate to serve as its representative for a two-year term. The expectation is that delegates will assist in the planning of two (2) consecutive Town Hall events. We are currently recruiting delegates from PIC II and PIC IV; we’ll recruit delegates from the remaining PICs next year and fully transition into the new format at that time.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Allison Godwin, godwina@purdue.edu.

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Research Project on What do engineering faculty think about wellness?

We are exploring how engineering faculty in the U.S. define wellness, its dimensions, and its role in academic spaces.

To conduct this research, we are inviting engineering faculty for a 30-60 mins interview through Zoom.

If you are interested in participating in this research, please contact Matilde Sanchez-Pena, at matildes@buffalo.edu.
