Pulled in several directions, we must find ways to meet the obligations of teaching, research and service. As we near the end of another academic year, we will look at ways to complete the equation. What happens when we have to let something go for a while in one area to meet the needs in another? Are there better ways to balance the equation? How can we as an academic family support one another?
