Apply Now for the Women of Color in the Academy (Stanford University)

Women of Color in the Academy logoStanford University’s Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity is organizing a 2.5 day professional development and networking conference for advanced graduate students, postdocs and early career faculty pursuing careers as faculty: “Women of Color in the Academy — Staying Fit: Mind, Body and Soul,” planned for Thursday, March 9 through Saturday, March 11, 2017, on the Stanford University campus.

Space is limited and applications to the conference are now open to prospective participants from across academic disciplines. The conference offers participants the opportunity to come together to share experiences, be inspired, and acquire knowledge and skills about key areas that directly influence the successful trajectory of women faculty today.

We invite applications from participants across the United States (seeking a mix of Stanford and non-Stanford participants). Airfare, hotel and transportation to/from airports in the Bay Area will be provided to those attending from outside the San Francisco Bay Area. There is no requirement for participants to come from certain disciplines or institutions, other than their interest in academic careers. Participants will learn about research-based findings and gain practical skills to advance their individual capacities to address the challenges and opportunities in their chosen academic career paths as women of color. They will expand their professional networks, and learn from peers and more senior colleagues at Stanford and elsewhere the art and science of a range of topics including negotiating job offers, academic authenticity, and approaching tenure. Participants will have an opportunity to develop action plans for success in the next steps of their academic careers.

Advanced doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers, assistant professors, assistant research professors, and other pre-tenure level faculty are invited to apply. More information is available, and online applications will be accepted via the Stanford University – Women of Color in the Academy website through 11:59 pm Pacific Time, January 15, 2017.

Call for Proposals: Symposium for Part-time, Adjunct, and Contingent Educators (SPACE)

Logo - Symposium for Part-Time, Adjunct and Contingent Educators

Saturday, June 18, 2016 • Atlanta, Georgia

 

Kennesaw State University’s Center of Excellence in Teaching and Learning with the support of the University System of Georgia would like you to know about an exciting new conference that will be taking place this summer in Atlanta!

The Symposium for Part-time, Adjunct, and Contingent Educators (SPACE) was created to provide an opportunity for contingent faculty to participate in a peer-reviewed conference. Part-time and adjunct instructors make up the majority of faculty in higher education, but there are very few spaces for this group to share their academic work. As the first conference of its kind in the Southeastern United States, SPACE aims to provide an affordable and centrally located conference for part-time faculty to present on topics related to their teaching or their original research in their academic disciplines.

We are currently accepting proposals to this exciting, inaugural conference.

Visit Submit Proposal website to submit your SPACE proposal before March 15.
