We value the use of technology as an
asset in achieving our educational goals.
We are varied in our training, interests
and inclinations, and our use of technology differs accordingly.
The appropriateness of particular tools,
we affirm, is determined by the context in which they are applied and the
goals to which they are directed. Technology is not an end in itself.
We have given thoughtful consideration
to the implications of technology on our scholarship, teaching and student
We have invested time and energy in
mastering the tools provided by information technology, and we recognize
the value of our efforts.
As scholarship can take many forms, we
feel that our research should be assessed based on its content and its
impact regardless of the medium of its presentation.
We assume that due consideration will be
given to our accomplishments in the use of technology in all assessments
of faculty performance including promotion and tenure decisions.

faculty stated: "The faculty of the School of Graduate Medical Education has
petitioned the Senate to be officially added to the Faculty Guide."
The SGME faculty have not officially petitioned the Senate; rather, they
are interested in exploring the possibility of being added to the Faculty
Guide. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
