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.

Microaggressions in the Academy

Wednesday, March 2, 3:00-4:15, 405 Clark Hall. Nationwide, colleges and universities are working diligently to create welcoming and inclusive environments for students, faculty and staff. While some may view microagressions as, “not a big deal or just an insensitive comment,” they can create a significant divide among faculty and have a cumulative impact on the culture and perception of programs, departments, and the university as a whole. Join this interactive workshop and discussion on microagressions in the academy. In this workshop, presented by Tracey Ray, Assistant Vice Provost for Student Diversity, we will explore:

  • Define microaggressions and “the truth” behind them
  • Examine how faculty experience microagressions in their personal and professional lives
  • Explore the impact microaggressions have on others
  • Provide strategies for confronting comments and non-inclusive behaviors that leave a faculty member feeling compromised
