PDW: Healthier Lives Before Tenure: The Role of Agency in the Junior Faculty Stage
Being a junior faculty member involves managing multiple pressures – from research, teaching, and service, to personal commitments -- which can adversely impact one's mental and physical health. Accordingly, this workshop offers an innovative, skill-based opportunity for pre-tenure faculty members to understand how to find and exercise their agency to make pivots towards curating healthier careers. To facilitate interactive learning, the session brings together faculty across different career stages who conduct research in relevant domains and/or have had meaningful personal and professional experiences related to prioritizing one's health.
Who can attend:
Pre-tenure faculty, who are 2-5 years out of their doctoral programs. Registration is required as space is limited. Please register here by Friday, July 28th.
