Mid-Career Faculty Institute
Designed to support the growth and success of tenured associate professors, the Mid-Career Faculty Institute is a yearlong program that begins with a one-day career development reflection and planning event, followed by a series of cohort lunches to continue discussion and learning with peers.
The program will enable faculty to assess their professional goals, address new challenges and opportunities, explore leadership pathways and ask questions about common concerns such as increased demands after tenure and mentoring. The program also will address navigating the process of promotion to full professor.
