Curating Your Career
The CFDE offers programs throughout the year on professional and career development for faculty.
Oct 24: Being an Effective Mentee: Panel Discussion
The Candler Library, Room 125
In this informal panel conversation, faculty will discuss how to be proactive as possible as a junior or early tenured professor. Topics will include how to be effective at “managing up,” being very intentional about finding mentors, and connecting with peers to create one’s own structure for support.

The increasingly frantic pace of professorial life can drive faculty literally to distraction. How can we counteract the frenzy and bring time to think back into academic life?
The 2016 book The Slow Professor: Challenging the Culture of Speed in the Academy, by Canadian English professors Maggie Berg and Barbara K. Seeber, draws lessons from the “Slow Food” movement. They discuss how adopting the principles of the “Slow” movement to academic life can counter the erosion of humanistic education in particular and university life more broadly.
The CFDE will host a reading and discussion group of The Slow Professor throughout the 2015-16 academic year. We will meet six times to discuss each of the four chapters, plus the introduction and conclusion of this brief, 90-page book. We will explore the pragmatic suggestions and potential problems of the book by enacting them in a yearlong engagement with the text. >>more
