Please mark your calendar for a faculty workshop on “Planning Your Faculty Career”. 

Friday, March 23, 2012

Wood Hall room 215

9 am – noon

Refreshments provided

Presentation 9 – 10:30 am; time afterwards to ask questions, form writing groups, plan future workshop discussions.

Workshop presentation: Directing one’s own career, planning one’s philosophy for teaching, research, and service, to align with the mission of this University, but also to focus on service activities in which one should be engaged, and how to write that focus and philosophy up into a personal narrative to use when going up for tenure and/or promotion. 

 Goals of the workshop:

  1. Learn the value of having philosophy statements to guide your teaching, scholarship, and service
  2. Support faculty progress toward tenure and/or promotion by providing guidance and information
  3. Organize “support” groups – small working groups of faculty to whom group members are accountable for making progress on scholarship, narrative writing, career focus
  4. Initiate/develop further workshop/discussion topics

 Future workshops on tenure and promotion are planned for the fall semester.
