Every Semester Needs a Plan
Facilitator: Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD
  • Do you often start the semester with high hopes for your writing projects, but end disappointed by your actual productivity?
  • Do you want to figure out how to be more productive AND enjoy your life this semester?
  • Do you desperately want (or need) to write a lot this semester?
Then join us for a hands-on planning workshop! We offer this planning workshop at the beginning of each semester so that you can take time out of your schedule to identify your personal and professional goals, create a strategic plan to accomplish them, and identify the types of community, support, and accountability you need to make this your most productive and balanced semester ever!
If you are unable to attend the workshop live, don't worry. Just download the slides, transcript, and/or click play on the mp3 player below for the audio and you can have the full workshop experience at your convenience.

About the Facilitator:

Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD, is President and CEO of the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity. Her scholarship has focused on interracial families, biracial identity, and the politics of racial categorization. She is author of two important books: Beyond Black and Raising Biracial Children, as well as over two dozen articles and book chapters on multiracial youth. After Dr. Rockquemore became a tenured professor, her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for writing productivity and work/life balance. Her award-winning work with under-represented faculty led to the publication of her most recent book: The Black Academic's Guide to Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul. Dr. Rockquemore provides workshops for faculty at colleges across the U.S., writes an advice column for Inside Higher Ed, and works with a select group of faculty each semester in the Faculty Success Program.
