Workshop for Newer Faculty: Teaching/Career/Life

January 20, 2012

Faculty in their first three years of service are invited to a half-day workshop on January 20 (last day of Interterm) to meet with newer and veteran faculty to discuss issues of mutual concern:

  • Teaching, evaluation, and how things work at Amherst.
  • The work/life balance: how to juggle teaching, research, and life (including when to say “no”).

The workshop will run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Friedmann Room of Keefe Campus Center, with lunch to follow. The workshop is sponsored by the Dean of the Faculty and the Office of Foundation and Corporate Relations.

The organizers are Rhonda Cobham-Sander, Nicola Courtright, Rick Griffiths, Lisa Stoffer, Mary Ramsay, and Martha Umphrey. For details, contact Rick Griffiths at ftgriffiths@amherst.edu
