As a member of our newest cohort of RIT faculty, you are invited to a very special “welcome to RIT” reception hosted by President William Destler. You will hear remarks from the President and Provost Jeremy Haefner, plus it will be an opportunity to continue building your RIT network as you meet Deans, Associate Deans, their administration team, and other key RIT people –those who “make things happen.” Our afternoon of socializing and networking is by invitation only, so please save the date, plan to attend, and register by September 3, 2013.
Preparing for Mid-Tenure Review
February 2014 - details coming soon!
Join your colleagues at this Mid-Tenure Review panel discussion where you can ask questions about requirements for mid-tenure review. Hosted by Faculty Career Development Services (FCDS), the event is an opportunity for pre-tenure track faculty to learn about this important process from faculty who have served on mid-tenure committees and recently tenured faculty.
Participants will learn:
- Goals of the third-year comprehensive review
- Selection of tenure reviewers
- Required documentation for the dossier
- Examples of tenure review binders
- Handling negative mid-tenure reviews
“So, You Want to be a Mentor?”
March 2014 - details coming soon!
Experienced mentors will share strategies and rewards of participating in this enriching, valuable relationship. The panel will be facilitated by Dr. Patrick Scanlon (CLA) and will include our past Excellence in Faculty Mentoring awardees.
Meet the Scholars
Each spring quarter, the Scholarly Publishing Studio and the Provost host a launch party for the Faculty Scholarship Report, where new faculty can network with RIT’s published scholars.
