Non-Tenure Track Faculty Interest Group

Thu, 12 Oct 2023 1:30 PM - Thu, 9 Nov 2023 2:30 PM

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

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

Please come share your thoughts, concerns, and experiences on the NTT!

Program Dates: 10/12 and 11/9

Time: 1:30-2:30pm

Location: Online (the Zoom link will be provided the day before the event)

Facilitator: Oliver Hyman, Lecturer, College of Science and Math

Program Outcomes

  • Identifying effective strategies for career advancement in a non-tenure track position
  • Developing relationships with non-tenure track faculty across campus
  • Enhancing and advocating NTT faculty equity
