Associate Professor Program



Throughout higher education and across disciplines, newly tenured and promoted professors face unique professional and personal challenges. The Associate Professor Program is designed to support them as they enter this transitional period.

Interim Program Director: Nadia Yaqub,



This program typically consists of a mix of daytime and evening events that combine opportunities for professional development, networking, and socializing.

Topics explored in APP programming include sustaining work-life balance at mid-career, managing increased expectations and opportunities for university service, developing leadership and negotiating skills, preparing for promotion to full professor, and positioning oneself in the academy as an established scholar.



All College faculty are invited to participate in the program in the first three years following their promotion to associate professor.
