CIT Seminar for Pre-Tenure Faculty Members

The Seminar for Untenured Faculty Members provides an opportunity for untenured faculty members to work collaboratively on issues of teaching and learning and on questions of professional development. The seminar explores the differing perspectives, challenges, and pedagogical aspirations of participants and provides mutually supportive feedback. It addresses teaching and learning concerns in light of the additional demands faced by untenured faculty members. See CIT for application deadline and more information.

OFD Junior Faculty Research Seminar

Each year junior faculty members from across the university will be invited to join a seminar intended to foster productive research and scholarship, and to break through the sense of isolation that may accompany the period of building one’s dossier for the tenure decision year. It will provide opportunities for participants to review and present their work to seminar colleagues and to benefit from the research and tenure experiences of senior colleagues on particular topics of interest.
