Pre-Tenure Club

Have you successfully navigated the first few years of teaching? Wondering how to stay motivated (and organized) in the run up to tenure and promotion? This faculty development circle will combine some professional development activities and original discussion among peers to help you continue on a successful path to tenure and promotion by identifying some of the barriers and challenges that may lie ahead in the next 2-3 years.

“Gladly would he learn and gladly teach”

“Teaching” happens on our campus in many different forms and locations. Come join with others to consider our work as educators both inside and outside the classroom. Using the book Reason to Believe: Romanticism, Pragmatism, and the Possibility of Teaching as a framework for discussion, this group will meet during the semester and discuss why it is that we do what we do. 

Family and the Academy

Along with work on teaching, service, and scholarship, many of us have the extra burden of childcare and family life.  Most academics take their work home with them, so how do we maintain the rigors of being an academic with also being a partner and/or parent?  Part professional development, part support, this group will meet to discuss how to balance two worlds and remain sane (*sanity is not a guarantee).
