Live your values. Transform the academy.

HuMetricsHSS is an initiative that creates and supports values-enacted frameworks for understanding and evaluating all aspects of the scholarly life well-lived and for promoting the nurturing of these values in scholarly practice. Comprised of individuals working in academic and nonprofit academic–adjacent sectors, the HuMetricsHSS team is committed to establishing humane indicators of excellence in academia, focused particularly on the humanities and social sciences (HSS).

You can find more about what we do under Our Work and an example framework and explanation of our values process in Values. History gives an overview of our initiative from its birth at the TriangleSCI workshop in 2016 through to the present. If you are interested in running your own values framework workshop, see our Workshop Kit.

The HuMetricsHSS Initiative is generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The Intentional Work of Values-Enacted Change

#MSUCAL and @MSUHC Dean Christopher P. Long (@cplong) shares about his experiences with the @humetricshss initiative and how the transformative power of values-enacted leadership has changed his academic career.

It's great to see this extended community of practice coming together around what @cplong calls "the intentional work of values-enacted change." So glad to be part of that community through our @UWArtSci collaboration with @HuMetricsHSS

Here’s what we’ve been up to @UWArtSci as we continue to Rethink the Academy: @CathyNDavidson @HuMetricsHSS @UW @simpson_center
