Preparing Future Faculty: Higher Education Politics

Tuesday, March 28
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm | Zoom

Just as in any other workplace, politics are a major part of the academic landscape. The success of scholars as they move into a faculty position could depend on how well they can navigate the sometimes-rough waters of academic politics. This seminar will focus on how to consider the politics associated with applying for a faculty position, starting a new position or when pursuing promotion and tenure. Specific skills and approaches that will help you to thrive in academic politics will be presented for all of these career steps. These skills that help navigate politics include networking, communication, emotional intelligence, and conflict resolution.
