Counting Invisible Workload:
A Resource for Faculty from Underserved Communities
ASA is often asked to assist faculty members in making evident to their departments and universities the huge amount of important professional work they do that is sometimes overlooked in conventional review metrics. Extensive scholarship has been done on the “invisible workload” for faculty which can be useful in your individual advocacy efforts; see, for example: Faculty Workload and Rewards Project (and additional resources at the end of this document). ASA has created a document to provide some ideas that we hope will be helpful to sociologists in beginning to think about the problem and tangible ways to mitigate it.
