How to approach the academic job market After Tenure
Facilitator: DoVeanna Fulton, PhD
that you have earned tenure and promotion, you may be wondering,
"What’s next?” Maybe you are considering serving your university or
in a different capacity than you have in the past. This workshop will
offer some aspects to consider for the next phase of your career,
particularly for administrative positions. Some questions we’ll examine
are: What roles are available to post-tenure faculty?
How do you prepare to move into an administrative role? How do
administrative searches differ from faculty searches and how should you
prepare for them? Before you go on the market as a senior faculty, join
me in this session that will offer meaningful suggestions
and options for your entry into higher education administration.
DoVeanna S. Fulton, Ph.D. is Dean of the College of Humanities and
Social Sciences (CHSS) at the University of Houston-Downtown. Fulton earned her doctorate in American
Studies at the University of Minnesota. Before joining the faculty at UHD, she was the founding chair of the department
of Gender and Race Studies and director of Graduate Studies and African
American Studies at the University of Alabama.
She has held faculty appointments at Arizona State University,
the University of Memphis, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Jimma
University in Jimma, Ethiopia. As an
administrator committed to academic excellence, Fulton strives to be a model as
a leader-scholar by maintaining a research agenda that contributes to knowledge
of African American lives and culture with scholarship focused on
nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century experiences of African American
women. Under Fulton’s leadership CHSS
has initiated several programs and initiatives, including two new graduate
programs, and the Center for Critical Race Studies, an interdisciplinary
research and academic unit that facilitates public discourse and cultivates social justice.
