Continuing Preparation: Goal 3

goal

2016/2017

I attended the February 2017 luncheon for the Winona chapter of Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) to hear Barb Breza, VP of HR for Benchmark Electronics, speak on improving employee retention.

bedellI was invited to attend the 2016 AACSB Annual Accreditation Conference  by my Dean, Dr. Hamid Akbari. I attended sessions on how to hire qualified faculty and how to best document faculty professional development using the three AACSB standards: engagement, innovation and impact. I spoke to several deans who encouraged me to pursue a dean position in the future. One person was my former undergraduate HR professor, Dr. Mike Bedell, the COB dean at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. Here we are taking a selfie for our friend and former CSU Bakersfield colleague at the conference.

I also came away with an idea for better connecting professional development activities to AACSB standards using a rubric. I’ve used the rubric to bring together WSU’s five aspects of professional development and AACSB’s three standards and filled in my information accordingly. This is something I would encourage all departments in the COB to adopt.
