ADVANCE at Michigan Tech recognizes the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the career development of faculty at all stages of their careers. We have and will continue to collect resources related to navigating these challenges on our resources page linked below. If you have found resources you'd like to share, please email us.
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.
ACM program will be hosting an orientation workshop on October 5, 2020 from 1-3pm via Zoom and we invite you to participate. At this workshop, we will explain the ACM program, provide tools for career self-development, and explain how affinity groups will work. Following the introductory workshop, you will have the opportunity to join one of our ACM 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 senior faculty called "Senior Guides" who share common career goals. Affinity groups are divided based on the common interest in one of three career paths- Leadership, Research Intensive, and Research and Teaching Excellence. For more information, visit our Affinity Groups page.
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.
