Getting to Yes! Essential Planning and Documentation Strategies for Early-Career Faculty Teaching and Research in and with Communities

Community engagement doesn’t have to be an area of teaching, research and creative activity that waits until you get tenure. However, to advance successfully does call for alternative strategies involving how faculty plan for, document and communicate their work. Join us for a session from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Nov. 16 that will illuminate tips and strategies that early-career faculty – including tenure line, clinical and lecturers – can use to advocate for their work as community-engaged scholars.

Faculty and staff $5 lunch special

Join colleagues at Tower Dining on Nov. 3 for the faculty and staff $5 lunch special, available from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
