▲ Pres. Jung Chang-young (The Publisher of The Yonsei Annals)
AS THE Yonsei Annals marks its 42nd anniversary, it is an opportune moment to reflect on the critical contributions the Annals has made in globalizing Yonsei Univ.

Today Yonsei Univ has exchange agreements with over 400 universities world wide and places the highest of priorities in expanding Yonsei's standing in the international community. The Yonsei Annals has been a medium through which Yonsei's foreign students and Yonsei's sister schools around the world get to know Yonsei.
For over four decades, the Annals has taken the lead in enhancing Yonsei's global profile. I am certain that it will continue to play a crucial role in the university's overall globalization strategy in the 21st century.

Despite the progress made by the Annals, I am certain that additional efforts can be made to ensure that Yonsei remains at the forefront of internationalization in Korea, and indeed, in the Asia-Pacific region. To this end, I would like to emphasize three points. First, the Annals has to take full advantage of the global information revolution. For the last several years, the Annals has been available through the Internet and I hope that it will continue to enhance its effort to reach our alumni, friends, and students world-wide. Second, it is important to meet the need of the increasing number of foreign students in Yonsei. In this regard, I am sure that the Annals can make a major contribution by creating a forum for interaction between Korean and foreign students. Lastly, the Annals should strengthen its exchange programs and activities with other leading newspapers and magazines throughout the world.

I am positive that the Annals will continue to assume a leading role in promoting the Yonsei spirit throughout the world. Together with the faculty, staff, and students of Yonsei, I would like to reiterate our strong support for The Yonsei Annals.

Once again, while congratulating the Annals on their achievement during the past 42nd years, I expect the Annals will increase its role in the future as a university journal. Just remember that Yonsei is proud of the Annals and I, as the President, am always ready to support.

Re point 1, I absolutely agree and it's niegus advice. Re point 2, I don't agree, based on my time at R1s. I know from personal experience as a candidate and visit planner that when I asked for special meetings, and later when candidates asked for special meetings, it did NOT play well. It seemed presumptuous, and it disrupted the well established flow of the standard visit schedule. Furthermore, at an R1, if you say that you're interested in helping students develop writing skills, you will look like you are absolutely not one of us. It is not an R1 professor's job to help students develop writing skills. It is most definitely not a professor's job to care what the Crew team is doing. Such a request will detract from your hard hitting scholarly/intellectual persona and raise questions about your commitment and tenurability.Now, I repeat, this is my view from the R1 career. It may well be terrific advice for SLACs, R2s etc. Other readers can certainly weigh in.Re the pumping: that would fall under the special needs that I mention as requiring discussion well in advance with the head. Now, if you've been engaging with the search comm chair, instead, and she's a woman, and the head is a man, then it will behoove you to bring it up with her first and let her run interference. But if no woman is involved, then just plunge in and clearly and simply and politely explain that you will need access to a private room xx times or at xx intervals during the visit. I would NOT recommend, though, bringing this up first with the department secretary, even if she's a woman and the person you've been engaging with. She may well have a different POV/ethos/political orientation/position on breastfeeding than the faculty, and could end up carrying a strange and problematic message about your request to the Head.You can't really hide that you're lactating. The chips just have to fall where they may. Lots of campuses are used to accomodating pregnant faculty members and new parents.
