Preparing future faculty

Planning for a career in academe? More than 200 graduate students who answered "yes" to that question attended the Nov. 17 event, "Getting Ready for an Academic Career: Preparing Future Faculty Conference," which had an overwhelming response. Organizers plan to repeat the event in future years, says Matt Kaplan, associate director of the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching (CRLT). For a number of years, CRLT and the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies have offered a few small sessions for preparing future faculty, as well as an intensive seminar in May, but the recent event is the first major day-long conference of its kind on campus, Kaplan says. Here, Edie Goldenberg, professor of political science in LSA and a professor in the Ford School of Public Policy, discusses tenure and faculty worklife. Conference sponsors were CRLT, Rackham and The Career Center. (Photo by Paul Jaronski, U-M Photo Services)
