Register now for Mid-Career Faculty Symposium on June 23
Career development is often focused on junior faculty. However, the literature shows that mid-career faculty are least satisfied and at the highest risk for leaving their institutions. The mid-career phase is also a time when faculty are most productive in their careers.
This symposium is a morning dedicated to the development of mid-career faculty. The goal of this annual symposium is to leverage the knowledge and wisdom of our senior faculty and to help mid-career faculty reflect upon and engage in best practices to reach mastery level in their fields.
This symposium is open to faculty on all tracks and would best serve faculty who are at mid-career and beyond. Examples include:
- Associate professors and professors
- Assistant professors who have been in rank for 6+ years and are in or beginning leadership roles
This year we are excited to welcome two keynote speakers. Ross School of Business Professor Emeritus and author Kim Cameron, Ph.D. will present on positively energizing leadership. We will also be joined by Madelyn Yucht, founder and CEO of Summit Executive Advisory Group, who will be speaking about mastering conflict and the language of influence.
The agenda for this event is forthcoming.
Date: Friday, June 23
Time: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Check-in and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m. Lunch will also be served.
Location: Palmer Commons, Great Lakes Rooms
