2018 RSA Career Retreat for Associate Professors

Hilton, Minneapolis, Minnesota

2018 RSA Career Retreat for Associate Professors
 
The Career Retreat begins at 1:00 on Wednesday, May 30 and concludes with the opening of the RSA conference at 12:30 on Thursday, May 31.
 
The Career Retreat for Associate Professors is an initiative of the RSA to reach out to associate professors seeking to complete a scholarly project and achieve promotion to full professor. Following tenure, many RSA members suffer from isolation at their home institutions that can make completing scholarly projects difficult.  Advice and support on advancement issues often disappears, and a host of new obligations often compete for our attention. 
 
With a special invitation for women and underrepresented minorities, the 2018 Career Retreat offers the opportunity to work with a senior member of the RSA who has agreed to serve as a Career Mentor to:
 
* Learn how to “read” your own institution,
* Analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your current curriculum vita,
* Develop an action plan to achieve promotion to full professor, and
* Confer with a writing workgroup designed to sustain you once the Retreat is completed.
 
Following the Retreat, your writing workgroup will be asked to keep in touch on a monthly basis and check in with your Career Mentor every few months. Writing workgroups are expected to continue for at least 18 months.
 
Retreat Leaders:
Cheryl Geisler, Simon Fraser University
Lynee Lewis Gaillet, Georgia State University
Kate Adams, Loyola University New Orleans
Leah Ceccarelli, University of Washington
 
The Career Retreat is open to all associate professors.  Women and underrepresented minorities are particularly encouraged to apply. 
 
Please apply no later than January 15, 2018. Notification will be sent by February 15.  Space is limited to 25 participants.
 
Questions about the Career Retreat can be directed in email to Cheryl Geisler, cgeisler@sfu.ca.  See you there!
 

Deadline for applications: January 15, 2018
