Mar 20: From Failure to Success

Mar 20: From Failure to Success

An Informal Faculty Panel Discussion Co-sponsored with the K-Club*

Monday, March 20, 2017
Noon to 1:00 pm
Center for Ethics Commons (Room 102)

Rejection and failure are unavoidable aspects of an academic career. But rejection can also be an essential byway on the road to success. Failure can make us stronger and smarter. In this panel, senior faculty from across the university will talk about the grants they didn’t get, the book contract that fell through, roadblocks they ran into when writing and/or researching—and what they gained from those frustrations. Hear their stories and learn how they kept from getting discouraged.
