Engaging Mid-Career Faculty: A Faculty Development Discussion

Last updated December 11, 2023

This discussion will benefit faculty affairs and faculty development professionals seeking to learn and share strategies for engaging mid-career faculty.

Overview

Most faculty development focuses on early-career faculty under the misguided assumption that mid-career faculty have “figured it out.” Yet mid-career faculty actually report the highest levels of dissatisfaction and are increasingly leaving higher education. Thus, institutions are noting the need to provide more comprehensive support to mid-career faculty but are unsure of how to engage this group of faculty and their unique needs.  

Join us for a one-hour discussion focused on essential strategies for supporting mid-career faculty. During this time, we will discuss: 

  • Supporting mid-career faculty through promotion and annual review processes. 
  • Developing mid-career faculty as they begin to lead the institution.  
  • Providing mentoring support for mid-career faculty, as mentors and mentees.
