From Center for Study of Higher Education:
The Center for the Study of Higher Education (CSHE) is holding the Academy for Holistic Reimagining of the Recruitment, Mentoring, and Retention of Racially Minoritized Faculty on five Fridays this Fall. The Academy will take place virtually (via Zoom and Canvas) from 1:00 to 5:00 pm eastern time on Sept. 22, Sept. 29, Oct. 13, Oct. 20, and Oct. 27). Details about this timely new academy can be found on our website at https://sites.psu.edu/cshe/education-4/holistic-reimagining-of-faculty-academy/.
We are looking forward to welcoming a wonderful new cohort and have room to accommodate additional participants. Given your participation in our spring offering of this academy, we are writing to let you know that we are offering an extended deadline for the consideration of colleagues you nominate (or encourage to self-nominate). Nominations are due September 15 using the form at this link: https://forms.office.com/r/TEH58QpU98. An acceptance notice and registration information will be sent directly to those nominees accepted into the program. For those accepted, registration and payment will be due by September 19, 2023.
As you know, the Academy for Holistic Reimagining of the Recruitment, Retention, and Mentoring of Racially Minoritized Faculty is designed for leaders in a variety of roles such as deans, associate deans for faculty, department chairs, search chairs, associate provosts for faculty development, faculty directors of mentoring programs, and for diversity, equity, and inclusion officers who want to be strategic and thoughtful in leading anti-racist transformational change at their institutions. The Academy provides time with faculty experts and peers to gain perspective on the recruitment, mentoring, and retention practices that do (and do not) create community and meaningful engagement for faculty of color. It is designed to reorient prevailing perspectives on faculty success away from dehumanizing ‘pipeline’ and ‘productivity’ models to approaches grounded in community, relationship, solidarity, and well-being.
