Assistant Professor Marwa Shalaby has a new piece in Inside Higher Ed, “Gender, COVID and Faculty Service,” about the gendered effects of institutional service on faculty research productivity amidst the pandemic.
Shalaby, along with Drs. Nermin Allam and Gail Buttorff, administered an online survey of more than 200 social sciences and humanities faculty members, both regionally and internationally. They found that “women incur a disproportionate burden of institutional service with little recognition from their universities and review committees for such ‘invisible’ labor. The ongoing health crisis further deepens these disparities with considerable long-term consequences for female faculty research productivity and career advancement.”
