Peer Orientation and Development Groups

Peer Orientation and Development Groups (PODS) are populated by early career/pre-tenure faculty (part time and full time) who meet once a month, but may also get together for other, more informal networking opportunities. Each POD group is co-facilitated by experienced JMU faculty members, and is designed to give participating faculty the opportunity to learn about academic culture at JMU, get to know faculty across the University, and begin formulating focused, targeted goals for professional development and career milestones. Two groups are available:
