Establishing a Research Agenda

September 11, 2014 by Claudia Scholz

Tomorrow’s Professor shares an excerpt from The Full-Time Faculty Handbookwith some advice for new faculty members.

Research and personal passions ideally go hand in hand, and it is a happy circumstance when these coincide with the agenda, both overt and implicit, of your institution.  That is frequently not the case, however.  So adjust the fit as best you can. If you are a first-year faculty member whose primary motivation is to be granted tenure, make sure that you fully understand the research expectations, both within your department and within your institution.  Talk to current and former members of promotion and tenure committees and review recent successful cases.

Hat-tip to Kendra Mingo.
