The achievement of tenure is not only a culmination of several years of work but is also an occasion for faculty to reflect on what happens next—the changes and new directions in their professional lives. This mini-institute invites participants to learn from the experiences of people who came before them and engage in post-tenure career planning activities. Participants practice a series of techniques for generating career plans and learn about first-hand experiences of the practical changes brought on by tenure.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these program outcomes:

  • Understanding the changes brought on by tenure, and
  • Practicing techniques for career planning after tenure.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these career planning outcomes:

  • Appreciating the place and purpose of comprehensive career planning in academic careers,
  • Creating a comprehensive career plan with a meaningful, measurable goals for professional advancement, and
  • Identifying strategies to maintain balance in work-life continuum.
