I am a new tenure-track faculty. I did my phd in a very weird way -- my advisor was in a different dept. So even for my committees, I did not have anyone from my department -- I even do not know anyone in my department.
I got hired for a tenure-track faculty. I had a social meeting -- three people asked, "what department did you graduate?". For many reasons, I said, my advisors department -- not mine....
However, now I am questioning it is ok... May I get your advice? Do I need to approach them to correct?
I feel panicky as a new kid here now
