Maintaining focus after tenure by managing time in considering commitments to teaching and service have been discussed extensively by scholars particularly in the context of the slow pace of women’s promotion to full professor rank. Additionally, the kinds of service that women and women of color engage in are explained as those that they care about and so have a desire to contribute. But these are often viewed as less prestigious, more time-consuming, or ‘merely token. What tips can you provide to associate professors to manage time? And, how can institutional leaders contribute to this discussion, particularly by reconsidering contributions? Each speaker will have about 10 minutes to make three initial main points which will be followed by a discussion along with Q&A/comments from all attendees. Please note that attendees are from within and outside Purdue.

This panel session returns this year because of the positive feedback from the past two years conference attendees. The main goal of this session is to gain insights into the promotion process from scholars that is those who have studied challenges to being promoted, from those who have experience with being promoted recently and not so recently, as well as from those who are/have been involved in the review process. The 2-hour panel session will comprise two parts. In the first part, each speaker will have 5 minutes to provide three main tips for promotion and in the second part, the session will be open to Q&A/comments from all attendees. Please note that attendees are from within and outside Purdue.
