Program Details

The retreat is designed to create a sense of community and connectedness for its attendees, particularly historically underrepresented junior faculty and post-doctoral staff whose career path is to remain in higher education as faculty or professional administration. We seek to build an atmosphere of support where participants gain first-hand knowledge and experience from a robust collection of season faculty in an open and interactive setting. The cohort will receive guidance on goal setting and outlining a professional plan.

In particular, a number of topics to be discussed may include:

  • how to maintain a balanced life
  • finding grants and funding research
  • the best strategies for publication
  • navigating challenges and other obstacles in programs and the workplace
  • coping with and avoiding personal and emotional hurdles to success
  • tips on building your curriculum vita
  • the promotion and tenure process
  • ...and more!

Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Graduate School.

Please be advised, a $50 fee will be assessed to "no-shows" (barring true emergencies) or if notice of cancellation is not received by noon on September 5, 2022.
