  • Do you often start the summer with high hopes for your writing projects, but end disappointed by your actual productivity?
  • Do you desperately want (or need) to write a lot this summer?
  • Do you want to figure out how to be more productive AND enjoy your life this summer?

Join us for a hands-on planning webinar! We offer our planning webinar at the beginning of each term so that you can take time out of your schedule to identify your personal and professional goals for the summer, create a strategic plan to accomplish them, and identify the types of community, support, and accountability you need to make this your most productive and balanced summer ever! Get ready to create a work-plan for your summer that you can immediately share with your mentors.

Making the Case: Preparing Your Dossier for Promotion to Full Professor

This series of free webinars begins on Wednesday, July 27th. Please click on the above link to register.

Faculty careers are long, characterized by many transitions from achieving tenure and promotion to balancing work and family. The longest stage of the faculty career is the mid-career stage, which includes recently tenured associate professors up to faculty colleagues who are 10 years out from retirement. The purpose of this webinar is to assist mid-career faculty across the academy in navigating through various mid-career transitions and career paths successfully. Together, we will focus on three critical concepts: Your Contribution, the PSEI (Purpose, Scope, Evidence of Impact) Framework, and a Mentoring Needs Inventory. Tools, strategies, and frameworks will be offered to support your growth and career advancement.
