Non-Tenure Track Faculty Community

The Non-Tenure Track Faculty Community is an informal discussion group open to all faculty, with a special emphasis on issues of importance to non-tenure track faculty. The learning community meets approximately three times each semester to discuss topics related to faculty life and professional development. It provides an informal setting to meet other faculty and discuss issues of common interest to those in non-tenure track positions. The intent is to enhance faculty experience and provide an ongoing discussion group. Each meeting will focus on a different aspect of faculty experience and help make connections with people in many different spheres of the university.
