"It would be very helpful guide to faculty who have not participated in a search before and serve as a useful reminder of do's and don't s for faculty who have done searches before.
-Creighton University 
 

Great presentation! I think this strategy could be and should be implemented with finding faculty/staff to support programming/courses in PCE. This could be successful with drawing in alums to "give back" and continue learning with the university. It would assist with making being a partner with PCE more attractive. The "stay"interview is also key and a tool that should be put in place. The Fact Patterns discussed were timely and powerful thoughts.
-Oklahoma City University

 
I appreciate the suggestion that conversations are critical.  Department-wide open discussion are critical for keeping our eyes on areas for improvement and action plans to achieve goals.  Separately, I sympathize with the idea that we might need to head in directions different from “what tradition dictates,” but I think that is going to need some force behind it to make it happen.  Following tradition in many departments (including ours) is deeply ingrained.
I like the suggestion to conduct “stay” interviews.
-James Madison University

 
"I thought the Fact Pattern examples were a very good way to end the presentation.  The presentation was will done and I think would be of value to faculty members as well as AUHs because it would help them understand what the goals and strategies of AUHs center on in promoting retention.
