Post-Tenure Pathfinders: How and Why to Chart Your Own Path After Winning Tenure

This workshop is designed for newly tenured faculty to identify the challenges associated with post-tenure life and to better understand the diverse pathways that faculty members can take after winning tenure. In this workshop, we create a space where participants can pause and intentionally reflect on future possibilities.

Participants will learn:

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