OCT29Women and Promotion: Challenges and Paths ForwardOCTOBER 29 2014, 3:00pm CPC - Campus Center (03), Bamboo Room
When: 10/29/2014 at 3:00pm - 4:00pm.

Consider... 

  • Men hold 75% of full professorships in the U.S.
  • Women are 10% less likely to be promoted to full, after controlling for productivity.
  • Women take on average one to three years longer than men to be promoted.**

Please join us for a presentation and panel discussion by RIT women full professors on challenges they faced in being promoted. This event will be of special interest to women looking ahead to promotion, as well as all faculty interested in serving as faculty mentors.  

 
"Women and Promotion" is the second in a series of events on Post-Tenure Mentoring, supported by an AdvanceRIT CONNECT grant. Pat Scanlon, Director of the School of Communication and Professor, College of Liberal Arts, is principal investigator of this grant.

DEC11NSF AdvanceRIT: Navigating Departmental Politics - The Michigan Players (for faculty)DECEMBER 11 2014, 8:30am VIG - Vignelli Center for Design Studies (07A), Vignelli
When: 12/11/2014 at 8:30am - 9:30am.

*Continental Breakfast begins at 8:30 am*

The CRLT Players are visiting RIT with their acclaimed production of Navigating Departmental Politics. A touring theatre company housed in the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching at the University of Michigan, the Players create research-based performances that examine current issues in higher education. Using a range of innovative theatrical techniques, the Players’ performances engage faculty, graduate students, and university administrators in critical reflection, respectful dialogue, and problem solving. This event is open to RIT full-time faculty.

Faculty participants have said: 

  • “[Navigating Departmental Politics] will make me more thoughtful of how I approach and think about these sorts of situations.”
  • “It was interesting to see multiple views on the same situation …. it was helpful to understand that reactions to a particular situation within a department meeting often originate in back-stories that may be invisible to us, as observer/participants in the same meeting.”
This event is sponsored by the NSF AdvanceRIT project. More information about the CRLT Theatre Program can be found at www.crlt.umich.edu/crltplayers . 

Questions should be directed to Laurie Clayton, lacpro@rit.edu
