July 24 Day 868: Your Opinions May Vary

I am pleased to announce that the opinion piece I authored for the AMS Notices is now available online. I wrote it specifically for academics in mathematics, yet I believe the need to align metrics of merit with institutional mission and values applies to all disciplines (and all institutions.)

I share it with you now because:

Be honest, does your institution (and the people making decisions therein) reward those who are supporting its mission, enacting its values, and striving for its vision? If your answer is yes, consider yourself fortunate. If your answer is no, you are not alone.

And who is going to help create change, if that work is not recognized or valued in a genuine way?
