This session explored findings from a new white paper that scans promising reforms to faculty reward systems to recognize a wider range of scholarly contributions in promotion and tenure decisions. The project was commissioned by participants in the Transforming Evidence Funders Network (TEFN), facilitated by The Pew Charitable Trusts.
In this session, co-authors Emily Ozer, Jennifer Renick, Bruce Jentleson, and Bemmy Maharramli shared findings from the project, including recommendations for funders, who are increasingly pursuing investments in the structures, cultures, and conditions that enable more societally-impactful research. Benjamin Olneck-Brown discussed TEFN’s interest in supporting coordination among funders, university leaders, and other partners to build on the substantial momentum outlined in the white paper and catalyze innovations that lead to more dynamic, equitable, and impactful research systems..
