Strategically choose career opportunities that match your goals as non-tenure-track faculty.


Faculty not on the tenure track are seeking career development and leadership opportunities relevant to their unique career paths. While they share similar responsibilities as tenure-track faculty, they also face being overburdened with undervalued academic work, such as administrative and service work, that may not advance their careers and professional goals.


In our video course, Becoming Part of the Great Aspiration: A Career Development Workshop for Alt-ac Faculty, Dr. Gypsy Denzine introduces the idea of “professional equity,” which includes your knowledge and expertise as well as your professional network and reputation. In this live addendum to the course, Dr. Denzine will walk you through how you can build your professional equity as a non-tenure-track faculty member by being strategic about the tasks you choose, so that they align with your values and career goals.


Who Should Attend

Whether you have taken the asynchronous course or not, this workshop is ideal for career faculty who are interested in career development and advancement. This course will also be useful to department chairs, associate deans, and faculty affairs leaders who create opportunities for career faculty and want to contribute to their success and well-being.

Recording available 10 business days after the live training.
