To Tenure and Beyond: Building an Intentional Career in STEM was a regional career development program funded in 2011 by A Pay it FORWARD grant, and renewed in 2012. A workshop series for pre-tenure women professors from six research universities (BGSU, CWRU, CSU, KSU, UA and UT) that collaborated on the NSF-PAID project Institutions Developing Excellence in Academic Leadership (IDEAL), the objective was to develop strategic skills, build confidence and enhance participants' understanding of academe while advancing the creation of a professional development plan that includes post-tenure career objectives.
The TT&B objectives were focused on developing strategic skills, building confidence and enhancing participants' understanding of academe while advancing the creation of a professional development plan that incorporates achieving career objectives post-tenure. The curriculum included skill building instruction and exercises, group discussions and expert panels of regional senior faculty.
