Inside Higher Ed: Winning Tenure Without Losing Your Soul

An interesting essay in the on-line Inside Higher Ed, Kerry Ann Rockquemore’s “Stop Talking, Start Walking” outlines strategies for tenure-track faculty to increase the probability of earning tenure successfully.

Suggestions include:

  • Aligning time and priorities.
  • Categorizing a to-do list by research, teaching, and service.
  • Aligning the time in the calendar with promotion criteria.
  • Mapping t0-do tasks onto specific time blocks in your calendar.
  • Creating a semester plan.
