Post-tenure faculty commonly describe a variety of challenges that are unique to mid-career including:
• Managing time in the face of increased service and administrative responsibilities
• Working long hours but making little progress on their research agenda
• An absence of mentoring to help navigate the post-tenure landscape
• Feeling unsupported in their desire for work-family balance
• Missing the passion, drive and clarity they once held for their intellectual projects

Writing Your Next Chapter is a workshop crafted for associate professors. This workshop outlines the common issues mid-career faculty face and provides participants with strategies for identifying where they may be stuck and how to move forward. Specifically, participants will discuss common challenges mid-career faculty face, learn frameworks to identify what is holding them back, and develop personalized diagnostic plans to move forward.
