Conference for Pre-Tenure Women

  1. Who can attend the Conference for Pre-Tenure Women?

    All pre-tenure faculty and clinical faculty from Purdue and other universities can register and attend the conference. Advanced graduate students and post-docs from Purdue and elsewhere can also register and attend. Although many sessions and workshops at the conference are geared towards professional development of early career academics, post-tenure faculty are also welcome to register and attend. The emphasis is on women’s success, but men are welcome to attend.
