Event description

Description

6:15-7:10 (Hilton Directors Row 2) From Assistant Professor to Tenure and Promotion to Full Professor

Led by Carla Freeman, Senior Associate Dean for Faculty, College of Arts and Sciences, Emory University

Getting a tenure-track job is only the beginning of a successful academic career, and getting tenure is one juncture in the life-course of a faculty member. In this workshop, Professor Carla Freeman will discuss the components that make a successful tenure case, the challenges candidates may face leading up to tenure as well as in the post-tenure years, and a view of the full trajectory of the academic career. What decisions about publishing, teaching and service can faculty make in order to maintain momentum and pleasure at all stages of academic life?

7:15-8:10 (Hilton Directors Row 2) Work-Life Balance: challenges and choices in the academic track

Led by Riche' Barnes, Assistant Dean of Social Sciences, Endicott College

Rhetoric on work-life balance is ubiquitous in professional settings, yet truly balancing family and career remain elusive. In this workshop, Dr. Riche' Barnes will explore issues related to the creation, limitations, or absence of policies allowing faculty and/or students to balance the needs of work, family, and life outside the academy. This workshop will also serve as a space to share experiences and strategies for effectively managing work-family balance in academia. Topics will include: starting a family (when), setting realistic goals (writing/job search/productivity), strategies to handle super-productivity pressure, finding time for writing, pros and cons of conference trips with kids, prioritizing multiple demands, including partners and parents. What specific skills can academics bring to particular choices, small and large, to achieve balance? Participants at any stage of their academic career and life course are welcome as we are aiming to construct a workshop where members have diverse experiences.
