National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity Workshops
Together with the Provost Office, WFF brought to campus a series of workshops hosted by the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. These workshops were especially designed for early to mid-career faculty.
In the first workshop “Mentoring 101: How to Get What You Need to Thrive in the Academy”, participants were encouraged to “re-imagine how mentoring works” through assessing their current mentoring networks and creating plan to expand mentorship where there are currently gaps. The second workshop was entitled “Solo Success: How to Thrive in the Academy When You’re the Only __________ in Your Department” and aimed to support minority faculty through identifying common challenges related to being a minority faculty member and identifying solutions to these challenges. The third workshop–”Building a Publishing Pipeline: Concrete Strategies for Increasing Your Writing Productivity” focused on conceptualizing writing projects as though they are moving through a pipeline. Finally, the fourth workshop, “Writing Your Next Chapter: How to Find Your MOJO at Mid-Career” tackled common challenges faced by mid-career faculty.
