Workshop on the Arc of the Academic Research Career:

Issues and Implications for U.S. Science and Engineering Leadership

September 9, 2013 [8:30 am-5:00 pm] – September 10, 2013 [9:00 am-12:00 pm]

National Academy of Sciences Building – Room 120

2101 Constitution Ave., N.W.

Washington, DC

On September 9-10, 2013, COSEPUP will host a workshop that explores critical stress points in an academic career. The focus will be on career entry, the tenure decision, and retirement. These transition points have been recognized as particularly difficult periods for faculty and administrators. This workshop will bring together experts on the problems associated with each of these career points with the intention of developing a holistic understanding of how policies specific to each area have implications for the others. The workshop will also include presentations about universities that have developed innovative approaches to these problems and discussions by education leaders about opportunities for other actions that could relieve stress on the faculty and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of university operations.
