Non-Tenure Track Faculty Interest Group (Online Faculty Interest Group)

Thu, 22 Sep 2022 12:00 PM - Thu, 15 Dec 2022 1:30 PM

Non-tenure track faculty positions are increasing in number and roles across institutions of higher education. Despite their increasing influence, many non-tenure track faculty lack opportunities to discuss the responsibilities and challenges they face in their departmental roles and the strategies they employ to find success and satisfaction in their careers.

This faculty community will provide a structured but welcoming space for non-tenure track faculty to meet regularly, network across departments, and discuss topics that participants deem important.

The first three meetings will be remote, with an in-person mixer scheduled for the final meeting in December, location TBD. Scheduled dates: Thursdays, 9/22, 10/20, 11/17 from 12:00-1:30pm via Zoom and 12/15 3:30-5pm in person. 

DECEMBER 15th from 3:30-5pm (in person) - SIGN UP
