EAM’s junior faculty consortium exists to provide networking and professional development opportunities to our members. It includes sessions that touch upon the unique challenges for balancing life in academia – with responsibilities around research or professional work, teaching, service, and home life competing for increasingly limited time.

 The 2020 consortium is career-focused with a faculty panel on work-life balance, a dean’s panel on preparing for tenure, methods and teaching workshop options, and opportunities to network with colleagues. The focus underscores the unique expectations, organizational culture, and politics of careers in higher education. Junior faculty may find themselves challenged by the competing demands of their jobs and surprised or confused by expectations. Attendees will have the chance to learn from deans, peers, and experienced senior and mid-career colleagues who have “been there”. Sharing collected wisdom supports attendees who want to understand these experiences more fully and use that knowledge to refine their career plans.

EAM is noted for its interactive, inclusive, and collegial sessions. You’ll be able to submit questions and ideas in advance of the consortium, and then engage with panelists and other attendees during the sessions. Many members joined as doctoral students or early in their careers, and have derived benefits ranging from finding research partners, mentors, and lifelong colleagues to enhancing knowledge of research and teaching, to building skills through service on committees, boards, and conference programs.
