October 2   - Reflect, Refine, Plan: Comprehensive Career Mapping, Part I

With so many demands on faculty energy and time, how do faculty develop a meaningful plan for career development that’s both comprehensive and flexible enough to accommodate the unexpected? This workshop introduces participants to the foundations of good career mapping: identifying key values, career commitments, and professional goals. (Part II, offered later this semester, will engage participants in practical exercises for making decisions and creating a multi-year career plan). Participants will leave with the key components of a statement of professional purpose or mission to guide career planning.

This workshop is designed to help faculty make progress towards the following outcomes:

  • Identify core professional values and/or commitments; and
  • Develop a clear statement of professional purpose.

Facilitator: Douglas Harrison, Ph.D., Department of English and Center for Faculty Innovation
