Junior Faculty Consortium provides networking and professional development opportunities for our pre-tenure participants. We will address issues relating to the challenges of research, teaching, service, and home life.This year’s program will include a structured networking activity, a dean’s panel on the tenure process, and focused round table discussions that will be based on participants’ interests. The tables will be hosted by senior EAM Fellows—a great opportunity to meet potential mentors and feel more at home at the conference.
The Mid-Career and Senior (MSFC) Consortium creates a space for open and frank conversation of special interest to EAM participants at mid or senior career. After an opening about confidentiality, we will invite participants to join a conversation/community. For example, mid-career faculty have often been promoted and want to talk about, “Now what do I want to do with the next 20 years of my career?” Senior faculty may want to talk about “When should I retire?” or “What will I do when I retire?” or “How do I stay current in my field? All faculty might be concerned about the career consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Will travel funds be restored? What is the impact on faculty workload? Do I want to continue in higher education? Join us for this important discussion! Learn More About MSFC here.
