CAHEP Early Career Workshop

Now in its 12th year, the Council for the Advancement of Higher Education Programs (CAHEP) offers an Early Career Faculty Workshop to assistant professors, new associate professors in higher education programs, and advanced doctoral students at the dissertation stage who intend to become faculty.

The workshop occurs from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. A diverse group of recently tenured faculty and senior scholars from around the country share advice and expertise about how to craft and develop a research agenda, effectively teach and advise, earn tenure and promotion, and shape a successful and meaningful career. The workshop accommodates up to 30 participants. A networking dinner with participants and program directors will immediately follow the workshop. 

Nominators are encouraged to join their nominees and other members of the higher education community including program coordinators for a dinner honoring the Early Career Faculty workshop participants. The cost for the dinner for nominators and other non-CAHEP Early Career Faculty participants is $40.00—based on availability.
