Professional Conduct Task Force

Charge: The Professional Conduct Task Force is charged with crafting an AAR Professional Conduct Statement (to be recommended to the Board for its consideration) that will address the following issues:

  • Stress our twofold commitment—to robust support of academic freedom and to the expectation that all AAR members will conduct themselves in a professional manner.
  • Clearly state AAR’s desires to build communities that are free from discrimination and harassment, and that foster inclusivity, mutual respect, and diversity. These terms/concepts will be spelled out in the statement.
  • Update and revise our current statement on Sexual Harassment.
  • Make clear how the above relate to AAR gatherings and activities (national, regional, and other).
  • Recommend policies for handling infractions of professional conduct.

Current Members:

  • Su Yon Pak, Chair
  • Megan Goodwin
  • Barbara (Bobbi) Patterson
  • David Sanchez
  • Randall Styers
  • Emilie Townes
  • Melissa Wilcox
  • Kecia Ali, AAR Status Committee Director
