Undergraduate Survey Reminder: We need your data!
The second survey of undergraduate departments is in the field, and we
need your help. If you are a department chair or program director, please
complete the survey as soon as possible. We need a strong response rate if
we are to assist departments in making the case for themselves to deans,
provosts, and presidents. If you don't know whether you've filled out the
online questionnaire, if you have questions, or if you need help, contact
Kyle Cole, 404-727-1489, email@example.com.
Committee Openings: The following committees and
task forces will have openings in 2007: International Connections, Public
Understanding of Religion, Status of Racial & Ethnic Minorities in the
Profession, Status of Women in the Profession, Teaching & Learning,
Religion in the Schools, and Employment Information Advisory. If you want
to nominate a colleague or yourself, please send a letter explaining your
interest and a C.V. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Twenty-Five and Counting: We’d like to hear
from anyone whose AAR membership has
continued without a break since at least 1982. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com to let us know
what year you started with the AAR.
Thank you for helping us update our records.
