Faculty Research Forum: Creating the Culture Around You

Faculty have an important role in creating the culture within their research teams by setting and reinforcing norms, customs and values. Likewise, faculty also convey these practices as leaders within their professional groups. Yet, the practice of establishing a conscientious culture may fall outside of your previous professional development experiences. Being intentional in your leadership and supervision can facilitate success for you and those with whom you work across the intellectual and social spheres. Also, it sets the tone with regard to safety, responsible research conduct, compliance, inclusion and diversity, and other situations. Join this roundtable discussion to hear how others approach this issue, and learn about the campus activities and resources with which you can partner as you establish your research environment.
