Mid-Career Faculty Chat: Is Taking on Leadership Roles Right for Me?

November 17, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join a small group of colleagues in informal discussions to explore issues and challenges, and learn about the resources available to support mid-career faculty. The sessions will address topics such as making the transition to your next significant project, achieving work-life balance, mentorship networks, use of research leaves and release time to further your research and more.

This session will focus on leadership roles, and the various questions and issues associated with taking on new roles. The discussion will be led by three faculty members who have all made the decision about whether to take on leadership roles:

  • Laura Albert, associate professor, College of Engineering
  • Tonya Brito, professor, Law School
  • Laurel Rice, professor and department chair, School of Medicine and Public Health

Lunch will be provided.
