Deadline to apply is September 8, 2017

YEAR 1: Description

The honeymoon is over. Classes have started, students are digging into assignments, the first exam has been passed back, an internal research proposal is due, student have questions and issue, there are requirements for tenure and promotion. How do you do it all? How do you do it well? How do you find balance between professional and personal responsibilities? What other issues do you have? All this and more is discussed and supported in the New Faculty Learning Community. The group meets once a month for two hours throughout the academic year. An action plan for success will be created and implemented - a faculty honorarium/ additional compensation award is available for participants who put their plan into action. This community is open to new faculty from 2015/2016 and 2016/2017.  

There will be two cohorts meeting once per month: Wednesdays from 10:00-12:00pm and Fridays from 1:00-3:00pm.  

YEAR 2: Description

The New Faculty Learning Community 2nd Year caters to the challenges that come within the second year of being a faculty member at EMU. The agenda will focus on what you want to address (primarily Year 2 tenure and promotion strategies and coaching for teaching and research success) and each month there will be opportunities for participants to lead various sessions if you'd like.  We can also bring in outside speakers and resources as necessary.
