Advanced Career Management- Faculty Career Success.

About Advanced Career Management

Adapted from University of Michigan's LIFT program, Advanced Career Management aims to promote faculty career success through a series of workshops, panels and career planning (affinity) groups. The program will focus on three core areas of emphasis: Leadership/Administration, Research Intensive careers, and RST (Research, Service, and Teaching) Balance. 

Upcoming Workshops

Affinity Groups

In Spring 2020, the Advanced Career Management program launched its inaugural affinity group program. This program pairs 3-4 recently tenured faculty (participants) with 1-2 senior faculty called "Senior Guides" who share common career goals. The theme for the inaugural cohort of affinity groups was "Career Track" and divided groups based on the common interest in one of three career paths- Leadership, Research Intensive, and Research, Teaching, and Service Balance- the focus of our Fall 2019 workshop series. If you are interested in joining our next cohort of affinity groups as either a Senior Guide or participant please contact us at
