| | Comments (0)

One of the most difficult things for new faculty members to learn is how to say no to administrative requests. This is especially true in the case of minority faculty, as many university committees have designated spots for underrepresented faculty. Since minority faculty tend to be junior faculty, a disproportionate burden is placed on them. However, saying "no" can be difficult, especially when you're coming up for review.

Efficiency site has a wonderful article and subsequent discussion on a compromise, the "qualified yes."
