FR8.00.18 Getting Tenure/Promotion –Research, Teaching and Service Strategies (COLLOQUY ORGANIZED BY UAA VICE CHAIR)

The transition to a tenure track position in higher education presents early career scholars with a number of new challenges. Among them is the need to balance research, teaching, and service obligations. Too often, junior faculty members are asked to manage these responsibilities without a great deal of advice from senior faculty. This colloquy was organized to bridge this gap. In it panelists will identify strategies for balancing research, teaching, and service obligations. They will also discuss pitfalls to avoid in these areas. Topics to be discussed include: how to develop a research program and navigate the publication process, the roles of funded and unfunded research in the early stages of academic careers, strategies for effective teaching, and service expectations in the promotion and tenure process.
