Strategies for Managing High-Impact Practices and Work-Life Balance

College faculty have been experiencing some new pressures to incorporate “high-impact practices” (HIPs) in their course designs to help with higher education metrics, including retention and graduate statistics. Although clearly beneficial for student development, HIPs are labor-intensive for faculty. In this session strategies are explored that encourage the use of HIPs but with an intentional reduction in hassles to promote more satisfying work-life balance.

Considering Carnegie’s Legacy in the Time of Trump: A Science and Policy Agenda

As one of the richest men in the world at a time of vast economic inequality, Andrew Carnegie published “The Gospel of Wealth” in 1889. In it, he delineated how wealth should be redistributed from the hands of the few to the many. Given a similar concentration of wealth among a small group of men today, it is an opportune time to consider the legacy of one of America’s most famous citizens. Specifically, the comparison (and contrast) between Carnegie and President Trump provides an interesting backdrop for examining our present historical moment. Specifically, over the last 20 years, there has been renewed interest in studying social class among psychological researchers. This talk will review the status of our knowledge about social 24 class in order to provide a science and policy agenda for addressing poverty, wealth, and inequality in our time.
