How and Why to Chart Your Own Path after Winning Tenure and/or Promotion

Winning tenure can be a thrilling experience after many years of hard work. However, once the initial thrill fades, many newly tenured and/or promoted faculty members describe feeling confused about their next steps, unclear where they should invest their energy, and unsure how to respond to immediately escalating service requests.

Presentation by: Carlita Favero, PhD Associate Professor, Biology and Neuroscience, Ursinus College

This workshop is designed for Associate Professors in all series  to identify the challenges associated with post-promotion life and to better understand the diverse pathways that faculty members can take. In this workshop, we create a space where newly promoted faculty members can pause and intentionally reflect on future possibilities.

Participants will learn:

  • The most common mistakes new faculty members make in their first post-promotion and/or tenure year
  • The NCFDD process for choosing their  pathway
  • How to create a new mentoring network and support system to ensure success in the next chapter of their career
