Service



Saint Louis University, 1992-present




Lists as I used for 1973-1992 (below) do not accurately describe my committee work at SLU because (1) My department was so small that I was on very many committees; (2) Some committees never met while others were a ot of work; (3) There were frequent changes in committee assignments; (4) Some committees came into existence briefly, then vanished; and (5) There were substantive increases in work beyoud the traditional academic career of research and teaching.

My committee participation included Graduate Affairs Committee, Several Search Committees, Graduate recruitment brochure, Biology Executive Committee, Computer Committee,Web/marketing committee, Undergraduate affairs committee, Curriculum Committee, Undergraduate Research, Technology, Environmental Safety.

Here are the big items:

There was a substantial load of undergraduate advising for a senior faculty member like myself, and a lot of labor dedicated to graduate student committees.

A huge new effort was diverted to Assessment
