Boundary-setting is a key to productivity and well-being – join us to gain the tools to set boundaries and be more successful in your faculty role.  


In Academic Impressions’ 2021 survey of higher ed faculty, staff, and administrators to understand the current state of professional development, 51% of respondents reported experiencing clinical levels of burnout. Faculty burnout comes on the heels of their being asked to do more than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic, plus the additional challenges of meeting the needs of students that resulted. But faculty who learn how to set boundaries with their work and maintain a healthy integration are far more likely to continue to enjoy their work and maintain their sense of professional well-being.

Join us for an interactive session on how to better develop and maintain boundaries with your work as faculty. Our expert speaker Dr. Jackie Leibsohn has served in faculty positions and leadership at all levels. She will walk you through identifying what is being added to faculty’s plates, how and when to say no to additional work, and how to survive a changing faculty environment. We will also provide resources for you to continue to practice professional well-being in your faculty role.


Who Should Attend

Faculty members at all levels, whether you feel you are struggling with maintaining boundaries, or whether you would just like to ensure that you are cognizant of maintaining boundaries in your work, will benefit from this training. Academic leaders who are looking for ways to help support faculty members in maintaining boundaries may also find this useful.

The Demands of the Faculty Position

We will begin by briefly acknowledging the additional challenges faculty are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Great Resignation, and changing student demographics, along with the nuances of successfully managing a faculty role.



Setting and Maintaining Boundaries

During this interactive session, our subject-matter expert will offer strategies on how to develop a better sense of maintaining your professional well-being as a faculty member, including but not limited to:

  • How to know when to say no, and how navigate those conversations
  • How to manage extra service work and work with students
  • How to set boundaries within your career path
  • How to feel more fulfilled while doing less work

You will also have the opportunity to brainstorm with other attendees on ways to develop your own sense of professional well-being and discuss how you have handled specific challenges you may have encountered in your own faculty role.
