Glenn Wright will provide an overview of the Future Professoriate Program, answer FPP-related questions, and introduce featured speaker Kiernan Mathews. Dr. Mathews is Executive Director and PI with the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Drawing from 15 years of faculty survey and interview data and from scholarship on the professoriate, he will pose questions that faculty—future and current—should be asking themselves, their departments, and their institutions at important milestones in their careers. Participants will leave with insights about mentors, hiring, workloads, tenure, the “counteroffer culture” and other glimpses into the arc of the faculty experience. Everyone is welcome, not just FPP participants or affiliated faculty.
