Preparing for Tenure and Promotion

Friday 12:00-1:45pm PT / 1:00-2:45pm MT / 2:00-3:45pm CT / 3:00-4:45pm ET Online
Round Table Discussion


Eric Riggs, Humboldt State University

The tenure and promotion process can be stressful under the best of circumstances, and navigating the unique challenges of a career in geoscience education in an academic environment usually adds to this. In university and college environments, our community spans colleges of education, science, arts and letters, and farther flung academic homes. Many of us are also appointed in interdisciplinary and semi-independent entities such as research centers and institutes. The breadth of academic culture, expectations, and standards for scholarship is daunting to manage, but it can be done. This roundtable is focused on all types and styles of university/college environments, and is designed to provide useful input for those individuals preparing their dossiers for tenure and promotion to Associate Professor and those approaching promotion to Full Professor. Ideally this discussion will provide a venue for those among us who have successfully negotiated these transitions to share best practices, resources, strategies, and support for the benefit of those who are approaching these critical career junctures.
