Welcome to our new newsletter.

Happy New Year! As our team and number of projects have grown over the last six years we've outgrown our old newsletter system, and we've moved to MailChimp. We're planning a quarterly schedule, and we're glad you're here with us.

The Intentional Work of Values-Enacted Change

A group of people in facemasks are standing around a round table with white HuMetricsHSS values cards organized in the shape of a tree with branches and roots made of values cards. This is a paper coffee cup placed on a round paper plate at the top of the tree with another round paper plate on top of the coffee cup with a set of values cards on the plate elevated above the table. A man on the right side of the table is pointing at the roots presenting the framework.

Dean Christopher Long looks back on six years of HuMetricsHSS in our latest blog:

The past few weeks allowed us to meet an important milestone for the HumetricsHSS team: we were able to bring two amazing roups of highered leaders — at the University of Washington and the University of Maryland — through the full story arc of the transformative work we hope to empower.

It begins with a reflective conversation about values that builds toward a values framework designed to inform every aspect of the work. We then deconstructed products of scholarship into their constitutive processes so we could identify ways to infuse our values into the micro-transactions that shape our work.

The HumetricsHSS team is delighted to announce the official launch of our new tool: the Values Sorter

Introducing the HuMetricsHSS Values Sorter

The HuMetricsHSS Values Sorter is a self-assessment tool to support scholars, research administrators, and everyone who wishes to engage in a self-assessment of how they are performing in embedding values in their scholarly practices. You can use the HuMetricsHSS library anonymously, sign up to create and share your own library, or become a contributor and submit advice to be added to the public collection by applying to become a contributor. Contributors to the Values Sorter can create values, activities, and advice to be added to the larger public library, for use by all visitors to the site.

We look forward to hearing your feedback and are excited to see the kinds of values and activities you’ll bring to the community. See our blog post for more information on the the development of the tool and to join the conversation.
