Faculty Senate leader to create guide for handling tenure disputes
by The GW Hatchet

Sep 22, 2014

Professor Charles Garris is leading a project to detail the tenure process, after professors raised concerns during three disputed tenure cases this past year.
Faculty leaders are working on a guide to help administrators deal with disputes over whether a professor should be awarded tenure.
Faculty began working on the guide, which will go into more detail for how to best deal with challenges to a faculty member receiving tenure, after issues were raised while discussing the tenure of three faculty members this year.
Professor Charles Garris, who is the chair of the Faculty Senate’s executive committee and is leading the project, said challenges to awarding tenure, which are called non-concurrences, are best left to faculty rather than administrators.
Garris said during the three incidents of non-concurrences that have occurred this year, faculty members felt that those who disagreed with tenure decisions did not properly defend themselves.
“Part of the problem is that so many departments and different schools have personnel committees, so there isn’t any special training for them on how to do these things every time,” he said.
He added that he hopes the document, which he has worked on with the rest of the executive committee and the provost’s office, will be done over the next couple of weeks. He added that it isn’t likely to be presented at the Faculty Senate until November or December.
Although each of GW’s schools has slightly different procedures, faculty typically receive tenure first by going through an appointment, promotion and tenure committee made up of faculty by the school. If that group determines that the professor is worthy of tenure, it goes on to the school’s dean and then the provost. The Board of Trustees rubber stamps all tenure decisions, a process Board Chair Nelson Carbonell said he wanted to change last spring.
A tenured professor will earn about $2 million on average at GW, according to estimates.
University policy says when tenure decisions are challenged, the dean should defer to the decision made by the department.
Garris said sometimes deans ignore this policy and use their own judgment, a practice that has upset professors involved in the process.
“If the dean is going to non-concurr, he or she has to support his or her reason for non-concurrence and basically explain why there’s a compelling reason, and sometimes there’s disagreement over what a compelling reason is,” he said.
Garris said he hopes the template will help clear up the issue of what evidence each party in a disputed tenure case must provide, and what steps should come next in the process, depending on the scenario.
Rajiv Rimal, chair of the department of prevention and community health, said he had received the proper guidelines about how to award a professor tenure, but he had yet to deal with an objection to a faculty member receiving tenure.
Rimal said it’s important for faculty to be involved in the decision-making process because of their knowledge of how their specific school functions and of what deserving professors can bring to the institution.
“Think about the how the Oscars are handed out,” Rimal said. “It’s your peers who know you and evaluate your given work and reputation. The same principle applies for tenure decisions as well.”
Cary Nelson, former president of the American Association of University Professors , said it is important to have a document to provide a point of reference for both faculty and administrators involved in tenure decisions.
“Procedures are what are central ... to everyone getting a buy-in into what happens,” he said. “We’re all human beings, we mess up and lose things, that’s life. We want to try to have ways to deal with this in a serious manner.”
About 78 percent of GW's faculty are not on the tenure track, according to data released in 2013.
Carbonell called for a University-wide tenure review committee to replace the traditional system of going through a department-specific process at a Faculty Senate meeting last March.
He said during the meeting that he believed the Board of Trustees was not the appropriate group to make academic decisions such as tenure.
Some of GW’s peer universities have already implemented an institution-wide system of awarding tenure. Duke and Georgetown universities have special interdisciplinary committees, and Boston University has its own special committee created for the sole purpose of determining whether a faculty member should receive tenure.”

Allied in Pride looks to emphasize diversity within the LGBT community
by The GW Hatchet

Sep 22, 2014
“Media Credit: Olivia Harding | Hatchet Photographer
Robert Todaro, the president of Allied in Pride, shows off the new "Queer Guide" that the organization published to raise awareness about different groups within the LGBT community.
Updated: Sept. 22, 2014 at 11:06 a.m.
Allied in Pride is planning to hold more social events this year to reinforce the idea that LGBT issues aren't confined to its members.
President Robert Todaro said that over the past two years, the group has made a transition from being a smaller, education-based organization to a major group that bridges the LGBT community through social events. Now, he said he's going to use larger events to advertise the diversity within the LGBT community.
Todaro, who has written for The Hatchet's opinions section, said he wants to focus on connections among race, gender and sexuality through events such as one by the Latino Heritage Association next month that will feature a transgender Latina speaker.
He said the organization is planning to partner with the Association of Queer Women and Allies , the Feminist Student Union and the Multicultural Student Services Center for social events like formal dances and speakers.
“We’re increasing our appeal, and you’re really missing out if you don’t attend at least one of our events because we have some really unique educational experiences regardless of what our group is,” Todaro said.
The group will also plan events around its first-ever, year-long queer identities campaign, which Todaro said will educate students about “the diverse spectrum that is queer identity.” Later this year, the organization will host a week of events that center on awareness of queer identities, though specifics about the events have not yet been released.
Allied in Pride created a “Queer Guide," a brochure written and designed by the group’s treasurer, Jay Fondin, that explains and defines different sexual identities. Fondin is a cartoonist for The Hatchet.
Fondin said it is “unfortunate but true” that many people are not aware of all the identities that qualify as queer. The brochure lists sexual orientations, genders and gender pronouns that extend beyond "male" and "female." It differentiates between sex and gender and includes information about what it means to be transgender, to identify with more than one gender or to not identify with any gender.
“We never had any brochure materials to explain the enormously multifaceted identity that is queer identity,” Fondin said. “We’re raising visibility because we don’t talk about this enough.”
Former Allied in Pride President Nick Gumas set a precedent for collaborating with other large groups on campus when he launched Allied in Greek, an event where fraternity brothers dress in drag and perform on stage.
Todaro said the event is successful because while the funds go to the Trevor Project, a group that works to prevent LGBT suicides, its entertainment value prevents students from strictly labeling it an LGBT-only event.
Shane Windmeyer, executive director of Campus Pride, the largest national organization for LGBT college students, said it can be difficult for LGBT groups to reach out to students who may not come forward because they feel unwelcome or excluded from the campus community.
“Sometimes the students that are not heard on campus are the most invisible,” Windmeyer said. He emphasized the importance of “digging deeper into what’s not being said.”
Windmeyer pointed out that some LGBT groups may not know about particular students who identify as part of the queer community until campus organizations plan events to pique the interests of those students. He added that working with other organizations is key to communicating “a message of inclusion and support.”
Campus Pride calls GW "LGBT Friendly" in its rankings of campus climates nationwide, giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Susan Rankin, a retired associate professor of education policy studies at Pennsylvania State University, said some campuses have established groups that recognize “multiple entities” within the LGBT community, like queer spirituality groups or groups for queer students of color.
At some institutions where LGBT students may feel uncomfortable, Rankin said these types of groups are “very important for information sharing.”
While Allied in Pride advocates for queer groups in general, the Association of Queer Women and Allies, or AQWA, focuses on providing an outlet specifically for women. After disbanding, the organization started up again last year and is now the second-largest queer group on campus.
“The queer community has a lot of different subgroups,” said Danielle Martin, the vice president of AQWA. “It’s difficult to put them together in one inclusive space.”
Martin said Allied in Pride takes an educational approach to LGBT issues, while AQWA tries to be more social. She said she supports Allied in Pride expanding its programming, but that Allied in Pride and AQWA will remain “very separate organizations with similar goals.”
AQWA holds weekly meetings to discuss different topics related to queer women and organizes social outings, such as trips to Nationals games. Allied in Pride’s listserv is comprised of around 1,000 students, while AQWA meetings have hovered at about 30 students in the past.
Martin added that AQWA typically cosponsors several Allied in Pride events, but that Allied in Pride is “more concerned with allies” than AQWA.”

Public health research surges as school hits its stride
by The GW Hatchet

Sep 22, 2014
“Media Credit: Anna McGarrigle | Hatchet Designer
Faculty in the Milken Institute School of Public Health have brought in dozens of new grants in the past two years, upping its research profile as it looks to break into the top tier.
The school won 21 new grants from the National Institutes of Health during the last fiscal year, three times as many as it won in 2009, according to NIH's website. That surge comes as the school has made several new hires and emphasized research in areas other than health policy, which has historically been the school’s strength.
Researchers at the school used funds from 323 total grants last year. Many were awarded in previous years, but must be distributed over the course of several years. The roughly $20 million increase in grants from the NIH since 2009 has helped the school spend about $387 million on research this year.
“That’s a pretty good pace of build-up, but that is also related to the fact that we’ve been recruiting new faculty members who are able to go out and gather those grants,” Dean Lynn Goldman said.
Goldman said when new professors join the school, they go through faculty bootcamp, in which they learn how to use technology like Blackboard and what is offered inside the school’s classrooms, as well as the school’s process for grant applications.
Since she started at the school's helm in 2010, Goldman has also emphasized faculty mentoring. Often, mentors can show newer researchers how to prepare to describe the goals of a proposed project, she said.
“These grants usually start out with an extremely succinct statement about your specific aims,” Goldman said. “It’s really important that those aims are sound and that the way you write them is compelling. That’s half a page, and you need to spend as much time on that as the whole rest of it.”
As the school’s enrollment has grown about 12.8 percent since 2009, it has increased the number of faculty to provide enough support to students, which has also translated to more professors bringing in grants.
The public health school received an $80 million donation from billionaire philanthropists Michael Milken and Sumner Redstone last spring, which renamed the school at about the same time it moved into a new $75 million building on Washington Circle.
It has also brought in larger grants this year, with Freya Spielberg, an associate professor of prevention and community health, winning a $23.8 million grant last month to find a way to combine primary care for HIV with prevention.
She’ll work with professors in the Rodham Institute within GW's School of Medicine and Health Sciences, as well as organizations in D.C. to complete the project, which she had to prove she could organize while applying for the grant.
To do that, she pointed to other work she’d completed across the country, she said, and touted the relationships she had with local organizations. She spent about three months working intensively on the grant application.
“The only reason honestly that I was able to be successful with this is because I had great collaboration and relationships already set up with 15-plus community organizations that really jumped on board and assisted, and were excited about it,” Spielberg said.
Ellen Lawton, a lead research scientist in the school, and Joel Teitelbaum, an associate professor of health policy, won a $300,000 grant this summer from the U.S. Human Resources Services Administration to bring legal aid to community health organizations.
Lawton said she spent about two years learning what the federal organization was looking for in a project.
Lawton and Teitelbaum had just four months to write their application, and she said it was important to have support from both the University’s and school’s research offices.
She added that the two approached those responsible for the grant as partners in their research process, which she said was key to winning the funds.
“That was, again, a long process of really seeing what their focus was, what their needs were, meeting with them both in conferences and in other settings where they would be talking about what their needs were, and then they really started to understand the work that we were doing and how it was related to their goals and perspective,” she said.”

Junior setter reclaims starting position after mental training boot camp
by The GW Hatchet

Sep 22, 2014
“Media Credit: Cameron Lancaster | Photo Editor
Junior setter Jordan Timmer participated in a mental training program with Olympic setter Courtney Thompson this summer, which helped Timmer develop mental toughness going into this season. The Colonials are 9-4 and will begin conference play this weekend.
Feet, follow through, confidence.
Minutes before the start of each match, junior setter Jordan Timmer closes her eyes, sets on the wall and repeats those words to herself.
Timmer learned the exercise in a training program with an Olympic setter during the offseason, and has used it to boost her confidence and reclaim the starting spot she lost to sophomore Emily Clemens last year after eight games.
Head coach Amanda Ault said Timmer didn’t lose the spot because she struggled physically, but because she let the key responsibilities of her position slip.
“One of the biggest things that a setter has to do is run the floor, take charge and command things out there,” Ault said. “I think that got away from Jordan last year, but she quickly realized she needed to make changes. She knew that she needed to make connections with the attackers, see what’s open, what’s not working for the team and who’s hot.”
Determined to win the starting position back this year, Timmer dedicated a large part of her off-season training to improving her mental toughness.
“Being a setter is like being the quarterback of a football team, so you take the brunt of all the yelling and have to compose yourself, and I think Emily did a very good job of that,” said Timmer, who transferred to GW from Central Michigan last season. “The offseason and the summer, I really focused on getting myself mentally correct.”
Timmer stayed in D.C. for the summer months, holding herself to a strict workout regimen. But to strengthen her mental approach to the game, she had a more unorthodox strategy.
Ault, who has known Timmer since the student athlete was in the fifth grade and attended University of Michigan volleyball camps where Ault worked, heard about a drawing for an opening in a mental training program run through Positive Performance. Timmer entered and after being selected in a lottery, received a spot along with nine other collegiate setters.
In each session, Timmer meets with Olympic setter Courtney Thompson and the other student athletes online, using tools like FaceTime so they can have face-to-face conversations. The students perform mental strengthening exercises, such as meditation and visualization, to learn how to stay calm and focused in the high-pressure environment of a game. They also complete training workouts and self-assessments to track their progress.
In one visualization exercise, Timmer was instructed to look at her thumb and turn it as far to the right as she could. After her initial attempt, she was told to close her eyes and visualize herself turning her thumb further, “pushing herself” mentally. Then she repeated the exercise.
“In the beginning, I didn’t think I could go any further than my first try, but then I went three feet further,” Timmer said. “This opened everything up for me because I realized we all have so much potential.”
Timmer said her mental training has helped her focus her teammates on the floor when they are trailing in a game or trying to rebound after a string of tough plays. She has also performed pre-game rituals to calm her nerves. Along with the three keywords she says to herself during warm-ups, Timmer writes “for the team” on her wrist before each match.
The mantra is appropriate for a setter: Though Timmer likened the game-managing aspect of the position to a quarterback, setters are not highlight-reel players, and typically are the ones setting up big plays instead of making them.
“I’m not the first one to get the recognition, but the team does a good job at getting the big kills and making us look great,” Timmer said. “The job is a lot of pressure, and we don’t get a lot of praise, but I like being in the background. Knowing that I helped them to get there is enough for me.”
Timmer has served as a key player for the Colonials, even if she is out of the spotlight: Through 13 matches, she has already recorded 432 assists, after totaling just 330 assists all of last season. As of Sept. 14, she’s ranked as the 10th best in the NCAA in assists per set.
On top of excelling at her own position, she also ranks second on the team in digs (118) and third in blocks (30).
Just as Timmer recalls her keywords before each match, Ault recognizes Timmer’s growth and achievement this season with three words: work ethic, perseverance and competitor.
As a team, GW (9-4) is off to its best start since the 2011-12 season. GW leads the Atlantic 10 in kills, assists, hitting percentage, digs and blocks. The Colonials open conference play Friday against Rhode Island.
“She’s a player you can see hard work has paid off,” Ault said. “She was working out everyday this summer, came back in great shape and is ready for the new season. Now that she’s stepped in and running the floor, good things are happening.””

Whole Foods cracks down on shoplifting, theft
by The GW Hatchet

Sep 22, 2014
“Media Credit: Olivia Harding | Hatchet Photographer
Whole Foods recently added new security measures like stationing guards at the entrance and labeling bags for customers who haven't paid.
Officials hope shoplifting from Whole Foods Market just became more difficult.
The Foggy Bottom supermarket will have a security guard watching over the entrance during most peak hours in an effort to combat theft.
Store manager Donovan Morris said the added security will keep customers and their personal belongings safer.
“It is because we were experiencing a lot of theft, not just product but customers were getting purses stolen as well as computers and other personal items,” Morris said.
The security guards have already caught several GW students shoplifting. Those students said the store banned them from entering for five years.
Shoplifting was a concern, but Morris said “the safety of people” was the store’s top priority.
At least eight students reported that their belongings had been stolen at Whole Foods in the past year, according to the University's crime log.
The Whole Foods regional and corporate offices declined to comment on individual store policies or why security guards were added to the supermarket.
Whole Foods uses a color-coded system to prevent theft from the made-to-order food court, using brown bags for items that have been paid for and white unpaid orders.

Local entrepreneur plans network for small business owners
by The GW Hatchet

Sep 22, 2014
“Media Credit: Leah Edwards | Hatchet Photographer
Kris Hart, owner of Foggy Bottom Grocery and Relaxed Tanning and Day Spa , wants to support GW spirit on campus with student-friendly events such as tailgates before men's basketball games.
Local businessman Kris Hart first heard about GW through his high school internship working for alumnus, Sen. Michael Enzi, R-Wyo.
Hart, who later became president of both the Student Association and his fraternity, Phi Sigma Kappa, came to GW in 2001 to follow in Enzi's footsteps and pursue a career in politics. But he quickly caught the entrepreneurial bug, and after switching his major from political science to business, he decided it was time to start his own.
He dropped out as a senior and opened Relaxed Tanning Salon and Spa, his first of many businesses in the area. Hart now also owns Foggy Bottom Grocery and a Greek merchandise store, and has plans to open a late-night diner in GW's neighborhood.
“I’m not a tanning salon guy, I'm not a restaurant guy,” he said. “I'm more into anything that is exciting, is innovative, is attractive.”
After nine years trying to make a name for himself as one of Foggy Bottom's small business owners, Hart is expanding his reach. He plans to start a professional network that brings prominent D.C. business owners together to share resources and references.
“We have a lot of people who can help each other out. Obviously, there’s a lot of that already, but we're trying to do it in an official way that's exclusive,” he said.
Hart is already the president of the Washington Circle Business Association, a nonprofit that aims to strengthen businesses in the Foggy Bottom and West End area. Local businesses like Founding Farmers, The 51st State Tavern and Tonic Restaurant are part of the organization .
He said his new professional network would require businesses to take a “litmus test” before joining, making it more selective than the WCBA.
Hart has looked into opening a 24/7 on-campus diner for more than a year and a half, but those plans might come to a dead end . He recently sold the spa attached to his tanning salon after sales began to drop, he added.
Joshua Hone, a sophomore and the executive director of the WCBA, said Hart is using the connections he has across Foggy Bottom and GW to create a “sense of community.”
“He’s quite a personality. He himself is an institution in the GW community. Between the businesses he owns and his presence on campus, everyone recognizes him and everyone knows him,” Hone said.
Jeremy Pollok, the owner of Tonic Restaurant and an alumnus, said his business relationship with Hart began when they started to sponsor campus events together.
“I think we both obviously reach out to the GW population and Foggy Bottom area,” he said. “It’s a good fit.”
Other business owners in D.C., such as Justin Glass, who owns the local bar and grill Stoney’s, said Hart has connected them to other events on campus, like the Alumni Weekend event Taste of GW.
“He’s keeping us in the loop and providing more additional projects for us,” Glass said.”

Staff Editorial: Commercial rankings fail to fully capture GW
by The GW Hatchet

Sep 22, 2014
“Media Credit: Cartoon by Jay Fondin
It's easy for current and prospective students alike to feel buried under the multitude of different college rankings systems available.
Admissions season is upon us yet again, and as thousands of high school seniors try to decide where to attend college, many will turn to lists that rank universities according to which schools are "the best."
Students who have been on campus a while might consider rankings, especially those by U.S. News & World Report, a bit of a sore subject .
And there’s a new kid on the block when it comes to the animal that is college rankings: the New York Times. It isn’t holding GW in the highest regard either.
But we shouldn’t waste time concerning ourselves with the tired U.S. News rankings or berate GW for its less-than-stellar position on the Times’ new list – and that’s because the biggest player isn’t even in the game yet.
This time next year, students may be turning to a new rating system created by the federal government. We hope that approach will provide prospective students with a more nuanced picture of our school than the Times or even U.S. News.
This month, the newspaper of record released its first-ever list of "the most economically diverse top colleges." You may not be surprised to hear that, because the list was meant to reveal which schools make the greatest efforts to attract and accommodate lower-income students, GW placed in the bottom fifth of the schools evaluated.
The Times' methodology has already faced criticism : Only a small portion of colleges – those with four-year graduation rates of 75 percent or higher – were studied, which means GW is competing against other highly selective institutions. And by examining just 99 schools, the survey represents less than 4 percent of all the undergraduates in the country.
That’s why it’s unlikely the Times’ system will vastly change the landscape of college rankings. Even the gold standard, U.S. News, has problems .
Neither list gives an accurate picture of the school many GW students believe they’re attending. Yes, GW has a high sticker price, but many students are able to come here because GW actually meets , on average, 87 percent of demonstrated financial need.
The Times also looked at endowment per student, which again puts GW at a disadvantage. The University’s endowment size , which is relatively small compared to peer schools, is a problem that cannot be fixed anytime soon without a real boost in donations and investment returns. But GW is certainly trying, kicking off its $1 billion fundraising campaign this year.
Meanwhile, U.S. News faults us, albeit slightly, for our many adjunct professors. At most schools, a high number of adjuncts represents an inability to hire and retain full-time professors with the highest degrees in their fields. But GW is proud of the fact that classes are taught by, for example, journalists and diplomats, and those selling points are the reasons many of us chose to come here.
And because GW puts money toward construction projects and student services , U.S. News docks us for not spending as much on academics as other institutions. While GW is proud of all these characteristics, and markets itself accordingly, U.S. News simply does not value them in the same way.
We want a system that won’t sell GW short. As is, there doesn’t seem to be a commercial ranking system that can fully capture the University.
The shortcomings of commercial lists have prompted the White House to work on its own rating system as part of President Barack Obama's focus on making college more affordable . That system, expected to be in place by the start of the 2015-16 academic year, will evaluate colleges based on factors like access for economically diverse students, affordability and graduation rates.
The Obama administration expects it to act as a foil to lists like U.S. News, which bases more than 12 percent of its ranking for a school on what it calls “student selectivity,” a measure that factors in admissions test scores, the rankings of students at their high schools as well as a university's acceptance rate.
Although the public knows few details about the federal approach so far, we’re hoping by creating a new rating system from scratch, the White House will be able to avoid some of the problems that U.S. News and the Times have encountered in their mission to evaluate schools – or at the very least, in evaluating GW.
If GW wants applicants to have a resource that provides the most comprehensive information about the University, it should look to this upcoming system as its best bet.
If nothing else, here’s to hoping it wipes away the bad memories of U.S. News.
The editorial board is composed of Hatchet staff members and operates separately from the newsroom. This week’s piece was written by opinions editor Robin Jones Kerr and contributing opinions editor Sarah Blugis, based on discussions with managing director Justin Peligri, culture editor Emily Holland, sports editor Sean Hurd, copy editor Rachel Smilan-Goldstein and design editor Sophie McTear.”
