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.
Fall 2020 events are still being planned. We anticipate having at least 1 half day workshop and launching a new cohort of affinity groups. More updates will be provided as we refine the details.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

ACM Workshops Recordings and Resources: Fall 2019
Did you miss our Fall 2019 Workshops but would still like to listen in? We recorded
all of our workshops and uploaded them to our YouTube channel so you can catch up
on ACM and ADVANCE your career!
During our Fall 2019 workshops, we provided handouts to attendees with resources,
links and agendas. You can find each of these below with their name corresponding
to the video by the same name above.
Capacity Building Exercises
Previously termed "homework" in the workshop recordings, our capacity building exercises
are small activities you can do on your own to stimulate thinking about your career,
the direction you'd like your career to go, and how you'll get there.
