Caron Presents Faculty Scholarship Assessment: A (Very) New Dean's Perspective Today At Texas A&M
Paul L. Caron (Dean, Pepperdine) presents Faculty Scholarship Assessment: A (Very) New Dean's Perspective at Texas A&M today as part of its Conference for Associate Deans:
I describe how existing measures of faculty scholarly output (publications) and influence (law review citations, Google Scholar citations (H-Index and M-Index), and SSRN downloads) can be used to (1) compare a law school faculty's scholarly productivity to its peers and to assess individual faculty contributions in these areas; and (2) value scholarly productivity of both junior and senior faculty. I then offer some thoughts on what these existing ranking metrics leave out in quantifying faculty contributions to law school success, especially at faith-based schools.
My co-panelists are:
- John August (Dean of Faculties and Associate Provost, Texas A&M)
- Gary Lucas (Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Assessment, Strategic Analysis, and Reporting, Texas A&M)
- Gregory Sisk (Laghi Distinguished Chair in Law, University of St. Thomas (Minnesota))
Update: Singing for my supper at Texas A&M today:
