Duke’s Newly Tenured Faculty Members Celebrate and Prepare for the Next Chapter
Earning tenure may feel like “getting off the hamster wheel,” says Sherilynn Black, associate vice provost for faculty advancement. It's a huge accomplishment as well as good time to step back and ask, “Now that I’ve reached this goal, what kind of faculty member do I want to be?”
Duke Faculty Advancement’s annual Newly Tenured Faculty Celebration and Leadership Retreat returned after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic.
“Our objectives for this retreat are simple,” Provost Sally Kornbluth told the associate professors on the first evening. “They are to recognize and celebrate your career milestone of achieving tenure at Duke University; to provide networking opportunities with senior faculty mentors and colleagues; and to provide you with a unique opportunity to strategically evaluate and plan the next stage of your career progression in the core missions of teaching, research and service.”
Here are a few glimpses from the retreat, held on March 18-20 at Pinehurst Resort:
