Facilitator: Lisa Wolf-Wendel, PhD
The focus of this session is on helping faculty develop a plan to navigate their faculty career, with a focus on the needs of mid-career faculty. The presentation will discuss some typical barriers that faculty face at mid-career and share recommendations for navigating career transitions. The session will be appropriate for newly tenured or more senior associate professors. Graduate students and newly hired faculty may also find this session of interest, as they look to what will happen once they earn tenure or have been in their positions for a while. Department chairs and deans may also find this useful as there are tips provided on how to support faculty at mid-career.
