Faculty Development and Climate

Diversity is closely intertwined with issues of faculty development and climate. Department chairs and program directors can play essential roles in fostering inclusive leadership and supporting faculty. Tenure-track and mid-career faculty have particular needs, as they seek promotion, define professional trajectories, and attempt to balance work-life issues. All faculty members, moreover, at different stages of their careers will find themselves playing the role of mentor, supporting and advocating for other colleagues. The following resources offer strategies for how to continue developing productively at various stages of one’s professional career while fostering a supportive faculty climate.
