Dealing with Stress in the Tenure-Track World
You have worked hard and been selected to fill a tenure-track position at UNH. That’s great, but what happens next? The expectations in such positions are high—strong research program, perhaps with the expectation of external funding; strong record of teaching, often in both large and small classroom settings; commitment to service, which may include departmental, college/university, professional, even community contexts. At the same time you may have family or other outside responsibilities. How do you do it all without having a major meltdown? We invite you to join other tenure-track colleagues both to share your concerns and your strategies. Dr. David Cross, Director of Counseling Services at UNH, will facilitate and provide a professional perspective on this important topic.  Lunch is provided
In order to encourage dialogue we will limit the enrollment in this workshop to approximately 15 participants.  Register for this workshop
