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 - 11:00am.

*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. REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR NOMINATED FACULTY ONLY THROUGH 11/14.  OTHER INTERESTED FACULTY MAY REGISTER AFTER 11/15.

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 .

Read more about Faculty Mentoring @ RIT

"Mentoring is not just for new faculty. All faculty members can benefit from purposefully developing a network of contacts and advisors who can help them navigate different phases of their careers. Senior faculty who act as mentors find they are reinvigorated by working closely with newer faculty and supporting their success."
