Mid-Career Faculty: Challenges and Opportunities for Development

The mid-career faculty stage presents unique challenges in academia, including post-tenure depression, over-committing oneself, or finding one's work becoming mundane and 'stale.' Recognizing these challenges as they develop can help, as can taking on new projects. Professional development workshops and programs can also provide opportunities to try new things in one's teaching and research, and to network with others with similar concerns and interests.

The resources below offer insight into the post-tenure review process, including how to prepare, what to expect, and how to handle potential issues that arise from a review.
