Professional and Unprofessional Conduct in the University Context

Suzanne Soled, Director of Faculty Relations, Office of Faculty Affairs

What are the professional responsibilities, ethical principles, and conduct expected of graduate student instructors and faculty in an academic setting? What are examples of expected and unacceptable conduct when you teach, engage in scholarly and creative work, and in university citizenship? Knowing the answers to these questions is essential information for any faculty member or aspiring faculty member. Learn the most common violations of unprofessional conduct, how to avoid them, and what can be done about them when they do occur.

Just Futures
10:00 AM - 7:00 PM

see program here:

This year’s Conversations in the Mountains brings German studies scholars in conversation with scholars doing related work informed by critical race studies and gender studies. Articulations of more just, progressive, even revolutionary futures long relied on narratives of progress that have been deeply challenged within German studies, queer studies, feminist studies, and ethnic studies. Just Futures examines what possibilities are articulated in literature, film, art and activism for transformations of the present for more just futures in the face of re-imaginings of the human, of the relationships that criss-cross the globe, and of complex temporalities.

APPM Department Colloquium - Eric Vance
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Eric Vance, Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Colorado Boulder

Toward a Theory of Collaboration for Data Science

The emerging field of Data Science is, by construction, an interdisciplinary, collaborative field. Statisticians, Mathematicians, and Computer Scientists work together (ideally) to create theoretically sound methods for domain experts and data scientists to apply to solve real problems. To be effective,
applied data scientists must collaborate with the domain experts who “own” the data and the problems to be solved. Is there a theory describing what components contribute to effective collaboration or how an individual data scientist can become a more effective interdisciplinary collaborator?
Where is the theory that describes how to train data scientists at scale to become effective collaborators? In this talk I will highlight past, present, and future steps to create a theory of collaboration for Data Science.
