In this five-day institute, mid- and late-career faculty are invited to a series of group and one-on-one peer mentoring experiences as well as individual reflection and writing activities to review their achievements, identify the central themes of their careers, and map out their future career trajectories. Participants do so by writing and revising a portfolio that describes their central career achievements and places them into a larger context of their career values and goals. All participants will work with a trained colleague who has previously participated in the JMU Academic Portfolio Institute.

This institute is for faculty who have attained tenure or who are in renewable term or part-time teaching contracts with six or more years at JMU.
