Whether you are considering the tenured or non-tenured route, Rackham has two career exploration workshops coming up that may be of interest for you.
Hear from Ph.D.s who work in a variety of non-tenure track academic positions such as faculty development, academic advising, and institutional research. You will learn how the roles are defined, required skills and methods for preparing for them. At, following the panel you are invited to join us for lunch where you will have the opportunity to informally interact and network with the panelists.
Rackham is hosting a unique session for those who are considering academic leadership. This is an opportunity to gain insights into the world of academic leadership through the eyes current of U-M deans and directors. The participants and panelists will work together on an “Inbox Exercise” that is used in new dean and director leadership training to gain an understanding of the nature of the roles. There will also be a facilitated discussion on the skills needed and the variety of career paths that lead to leadership positions in academic institutions.
I invite you to join us at these sessions to gain some vicarious insights into academic roles. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly. Hope to see you there!
