The Junior Faculty Consortium is targeted towards faculty who are in the initial stages of their academic careers and who would like to gain insights about teaching, research, publishing and professional development. Faculty members who have earned their doctoral degrees and are in the first three years of their academic careers are eligible to apply.

The Junior Faculty Consortium is run as a development workshop and provides a forum for interaction for new and junior faculty with senior faculty about how to prosper in their academic career. The workshop will focus on strategies for effective teaching, research, and overall career strategies for developing your career path in academia. You will have a chance to interact with an exciting team of faculty colleagues through experiential discussions and informal conversations.

 The consortium will be held in the afternoon of  Thursday, October 26, 2017 as part of the AIB-SE 2017 conference, on the campus of the University of the District of Columbia. Although each participant will be required to register for the 2017 AIB-SE Annual Meeting, there are no additional fees for participating in this consortium.

To facilitate close personal engagement, space for this workshop is limited and participation is by application only. We expect about 20 junior faculty participants. We also invite deans, department chairs, former workshop alumni, and other faculty to encourage their new faculty to apply.

All submissions will be handled through the AIB-SE online submission system.
