Session 1

How Do You Know If You are Ready To Go Up For Full Professor?

Readings:

You Might Not Be Ready for Promotion, The Chronicle of Higher Education

Telling Your Tenure Story, Inside Higher Ed

Post-Tenure Pathways, Inside Higher Ed

How Associate Professors can Avoid Impedements to Full Professorship (Opinion), Inside Higher Ed

Please note: the first reading was included to generate discussion. It was concluded that although you do need to view your tenure package objectively, the tone of the paper was overly negative. Also, the notion expressed in the article that "many scholars overvalue their own contributions" was deemed an overgeneralization!
