Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: When I accepted the elected position of Vice-President, University and External Affairs for our faculty association, I became a member of the faculty executive, the chair of the University & External Affairs Committee, and the faculty association representative at our provincial and national association meetings. As Chair of the University & External Affairs Committee, I had the privilege of assembling a stellar group of faculty members and influencing the academy through awarding two annual student scholarships, organizing two public lectures for faculty members and their guests, presenting our faculty association wreath at Remembrance Day, initiating a focus on health and safety, and participating in biweekly executive meetings and faculty association council meetings. I was able to draw upon my previous experience as a sessional faculty member, my current experience as a secure full time faculty member, and my experience as chair of an undergraduate nursing program to influence a range of decisions that impacted faculty members across the university. I also grew to appreciate the importance of supporting a strong voice for post-secondary education (PSE) in Canada through the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT). My two terms fulfilled both personal and professional goals and such opportunities are highly recommended.
