These workshops discuss strategies for helping junior faculty advance in the University. Panels of faculty and administrators advise the faculty on many topics, including gathering strong recommendation letters, focusing research and achieving balance of research, teaching, and service.

Chapter Meetings

fall chapter meeting Chapter Meetings, which occur at least once in each of the Fall and Spring terms, are important meetings for the Chapter to democratically sets its goals and policy for the upcoming period. The Chapter membership hears reports from the Executive Committee, the Bargaining Team, the Grievance Team, etc., and helps influences policy for the upcoming period which the various committees and teams will then help carry out.
