TENURE & TIME MANAGEMENT:
How to Manage Your Time so You Can Publish Prolifically AND Have a Life Beyond the Ivory Tower
New faculty members commonly describe:
- Working long hours but making little progress on their research agenda
- A sense of loneliness that stems from minimal mentoring and community
- Being unprepared for their new faculty position by their graduate programs
- Feeling unsupported in their desire for work-family balance and without the skills to achieve it
- Wondering whether the academic path is the right career choice
The Tenure and Time Management Workshop is specifically designed to address these issues and provide participants with concrete skills to successfully transition from graduate student to professor. Specifically, participants learn:
- The common time challenges academics face
- How to avoid the most common mistakes new faculty make in managing their time
- Why and how to align work time with institutional and personal priorities
- How to create time for academic writing and research
- How to organize a network of support and accountability for writing productivity and balance

Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD is President and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. Her scholarship has focused on interracial families, biracial identity, and the politics of racial categorization. She is author of two books: Beyond Black and Raising Biracial Children, as well as over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. After Dr. Rockquemore became a tenured professor (at the University of Illinois at Chicago), her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for professional development, writing productivity and work/life balance. Her award-winning work with under- represented faculty led to the publication of her most recent book: The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul. Through the NCFDD, Dr. Rockquemore provides workshops for new faculty at colleges across the United States, writes a weekly advice column for Inside Higher Education, and works with a select group of new faculty each semester in the NCFDD’s Faculty Success Program.
