Positive Steps Toward Tenure

When: October 30, 2020

Where: Online



This session focuses on the many questions that arise as early career faculty move toward tenure review, such as:
  • What are the expectations for tenure in my department or university? How can I find out?
  • Where are the best places to publish and what are good strategies for building a publishing record?
  • Should I obtain internal or external grants? Which ones are best? Will they count?
  • How do I balance teaching, service and research to build my career?
  • How can I use service strategically towards both me and my program?
All of these questions can make the tenure process stressful. This session aims to reduce this stress by pointing out positive steps early career faculty can take along the way to build strong records in research, teaching and service.
