Service activities make significant contributions to the advancement of the educational, scholarly, governance, and collegial goals and missions of the University, College, Campus, Department, or community.  These activities may or may not be tied to a faculty member’s specialization within philosophy.  The following are examples of service and are not an exhaustive list.

  1. Outstanding service to the Department, College, Campus, or University. The activities may include: 
    1. Committee membership or committee Chair positions beyond routine participation in Departmental committees of the whole such as FAC, Grad FAC, Curriculum Committee, search committees, and graduate conference attendance. These additional activities may include MA advising and thesis reading, participation in ad hoc committee assignments or student advising beyond routine assignments.
    2. Participation in undergraduate or graduate student recruitment activities. 
    3. Service to the Department, such as Graduate and Undergraduate Coordinator, or CAC Representative.
    4. Guest lecturing, thesis and dissertation reading outside the Department, or serving as an ad hoc RTP reviewer for other departments.
    5. Serving on university-wide committees or organizations, including (but not limited to) advising for student organizations beyond the Department, Faculty Senate, Regional Campus Faculty Council, IRB, IACUC, Provost’s Advisory Boards, AAUP leadership, and ad hoc University-wide hiring or review committees.
