Save the Date: Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students Finalist Interviews

 The Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students search committee will host on-campus candidate interviews starting Thursday (April 15). The finalists were selected as the result of a nationwide search that began in January. 

The campus community is invited to attend a campus forum for each candidate via Zoom. The presentations will be approximately 30 minutes with a 15 minute Q&A to follow. 

Specific dates and candidate information will be released tomorrow (April 13). 

10-digit Dialing Requirement

Effective Oct. 24, 2021, all local calls from campus phones will require full 10-digit dialing (8 + 1 + 906-XXX-XXXX).

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted 988 as a new three-digit number for the National Suicide and Mental Health Crisis Lifeline, starting July 16, 2022. In order for 988 to work nationwide, 10-digit local dialing must be implemented. This change affects 82 area codes across the country, including the 906 area code.

You can start dialing like this now in preparation for this change. If you forget, 7-digit dialing will continue to work for now. No cost is incurred for local dialing using either 7- or 10-digit dialing.

If you have any questions, we can help. Contact IT at it-help@mtu.edu or call 7-1111.

Scholar, Creator, and Researcher Pandemic Impacts: Findings and Responses

A few weeks ago the Offices of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Vice President for Research, and ADVANCE organized a session (view recording here if you missed it) with campus scholars, creators, and researchers to learn more about pandemic impacts on their work and discuss potential solutions. We learned that impacts have been highly variable: some have had a devastatingly difficult year, during which it was incredibly hard to be research-productive; some experienced more modest, but serious setbacks; others have been able to, in some ways, increase their productivity. This variability sets the stage for a potential lack of understanding of the serious to devastating impacts on some of us.

Thank you to those who participated in the session and/or completed our questionnaire - adding one more event to already busy schedules was particularly difficult when we are all struggling. We are particularly grateful to those who entrusted us with their stories of how they have been impacted. We share here some of what we learned, as well as steps we and others have since taken.

Findings:

[During the pandemic I have experienced...] “increased time with children, increased time adapting teaching, increased time mitigating lab safety protocols, increased time and straight up cancellation of research travel, starting tenure-track with no ability to network in person, zoom after zoom…has made for a continuous crushing feeling of inadequacy and guilt...”

This quote from one of our session participants poignantly summarizes how many of you feel while describing several of the following impacts and concerns most frequently expressed by participants:

  • Reduced research time due to increased course adaptation time demands and child and/or eldercare responsibilities
  • Research delays due to restrictions on human and animal subject, laboratory, fieldwork, and research-related travel activities
  • Reduced abilities to develop the internal and external professional networks vital to scholarly success
  • Concerns and questions regarding tenure extension policies
  • Concerns and questions regarding potential bias against those impacted during merit, tenure, and promotion processes
  • Extreme pandemic fatigue, with the associated feeling that people cannot sustain an increased level of effort much longer and uncertainty about what mental health benefits are available to employees and dependents and how to access these benefits
  • The feeling that Michigan Tech leaders could do more to acknowledge and normalize our struggles with these impacts and to recognize how difficult they have been

Most importantly, we learned that there is high variation in the degree to which the pandemic has negatively affected individuals. In general, the greater the number and intensity of the above impacts experienced, the more the pandemic has reduced individuals’ ability to devote time to scholarship. Some have been minimally impacted, while others have experienced crushing, overwhelming impacts that may affect their research and scholarship for many years. This has the potential to exacerbate #5 above, introducing bias into raise, tenure and promotion decisions, given that some participating in these evaluation processes may not understand or empathize with how devastating the pandemic has been for many of our scholars.

Solutions

We recently shared these findings and our solution recommendations with Provost Jackie Huntoon and Vice President for Research Dave Reed. Here are some of the measures either planned or already undertaken already to help to mitigate COVID impacts.

  • The language in letters to external tenure and promotion reviewers has been revised to explain that reviewers should consider the candidate’s complete body of work and not the time over which it was completed. This language will be reviewed and updated as needed.
  • Faculty are being encouraged to document and reflect upon pandemic impacts on their research, scholarship, and creative work in their vitae and Digital Measures updates for use in future tenure, promotion and merit reviews
  • The provost plans to issue detailed guidance on the policies and procedures associated with tenure extensions; a proposal to allow for a second-year extension to the tenure clock is being considered by the University Senate
  • We are working to identify an outlet to allow scholars, creators, and researchers particularly negatively impacted by the pandemic to share their stories. Please let Shari Stockero know if you are interested in contributing.
  • Deans Minerick and Storer are leading an effort to identify and formally propose additional university policies and practices that could mitigate negative research and scholarship impacts due to the pandemic and recovery period.
  • The Office of the Vice President for Research is allowing faculty start-up extensions to mitigate pandemic-related research delays. Detailed guidance on this temporary change will be issued shortly.
  • Next year’s Research Excellence Fund (REF) grants will be at least partially refocused to help scholars and researchers reduce negative pandemic effects on their work. Detailed guidance on these temporary changes will be issued this summer.
  • We plan to offer a series of internal networking events to bring together scholars and researchers around a series of research topics during the 2021-22 academic year.
  • The benefits office will be sharing information about our mental health benefits to increase the campus community’s awareness of what is available.

Volleyball Huskies Fall to NMU in GLIAC Championship

No. 21 Michigan Tech fell 3-0 to No. 20 Northern Michigan in the GLIAC Volleyball Championship Sunday on the campus of Saginaw Valley State. The Huskies season wrapped up with an 11-4 overall record.

"Credit and congratulations to Northern for playing a great match today and for putting together a great season," Tech Coach Matt Jennings said. "Simply put, they played better than us in every part of the game.

"We didn't execute well enough in some pretty basic areas, which is probably the most disappointing part of that match. We certainly picked a bad time to play tense and make uncharacteristic mistakes. Northern just ran their system better than we ran ours and executed way more consistently, which was compounded by the number of points we gave them unearned."

NMU won 25-23, 25-16, and 26-24. In the first, the teams fought through nine ties. Tech held a 23-22 lead after a kill by Anna Jonynas, but three straight points put NMU in the lead. Jonynas had six kills in the first.

The Wildcats (15-2) never trailed in the second and hit .387. Lindy Oujiri had four kills for the Huskies while Jane Grindland and Jonynas combined for six.

There were six lead changes in the third. Tech had setpoint at 24-23 after a kill by Oujiri, but NMU scored three straight points to take the win.

Anna Jonynas and Lindy Oujiri each had 11 kills and Janie Grindland added six. Jonynas also tallied 10 digs.

Laura De Marchi set the offense with 37 assists and had 13 digs. Megan Utlak led the team with 14 digs.

"I don't think today reflected what this team did all season and what we're capable of," added Jennings. "I'm proud of the way we battled through adversity this year, especially late in the season. But it's my job to figure out a way to get over this hurdle that we seem to encounter in the finals. I'm responsible for getting them ready to play in big matches like this one and we did not come out sharp or ready to play. We'll pick up the pieces and put them back together going forward. There's a lot to build on."

Anna Jonynas and Laura De Marchi were named to the GLIAC All-Tournament Team. The Huskies are returning all 17 players for the fall.
