Non-Tenure Track Faculty Interest Group Meetings (Spring 2024)

Wed, 27 Mar 2024 2:00 PM - Thu, 18 Apr 2024 1:00 PM

Non-tenure track faculty positions are increasing in number and roles across institutions of higher education. Despite our 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.

Dates & Times

  • Wednesday, 3/27 or Thursday, 3/28, from 2 - 3 PM
  • Wednesday, 4/17 or Thursday, 4/18, from 12 - 1 PM

Location: Online (The Zoom link will be provided either with the email registration confirmation or by email the day before the event.)

Facilitator: Ron Rubin, COB

Genre: Faculty Community

Program Outcomes

  • Identifying effective strategies and best practices for career advancement in a non-tenure track position
  • Developing relationships with non-tenure track faculty across campus
