Assistant Professor Chat: Leadership and Governance – How and When to Get Involved
December 5, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Join a small group of assistant professors from across campus in open discussions on topics of interest to tenure-track faculty. The sessions will connect faculty with campus leaders and fellow colleagues, foster a sense of community, and provide opportunities to learn about key programs, research funding initiatives, and other resources that support career success.
This chat will focus on how and when to get involved in leadership and governance as an assistant professor. How can assistant professors do what they need to do to build a robust early career in teaching and research and still become involved in leadership and governance roles? What roles are the most valuable, and how do you know when is the right time to become engaged? Attendees will discuss these and other issues regarding how to get involved; the discussion will be led by three faculty members who have, themselves, asked and answered these questions when they were assistant professors.
Lunch will be provided.
This event is part of the Assistant Professor Chat Series. There are typically four chats per academic year, two in the fall and two in the spring. Topics include mentoring, leadership, climate and inclusion, and advancement. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of the Secretary of the Faculty and the vice provost for faculty and staff, and coordinated by the Office of Quality Improvement.
