Starting an academic career involves new opportunities to learn, connect with others, and make meaningful contributions–to share one’s excitement about one’s field with learners, to advance the knowledge base, and to use one’s expertise to address pressing issues in the broader society.
Faculty and academic staff in all appointment types are invited to attend. The Conversations are intended to be no-pressure, enjoyable opportunities to meet others at your career stage, learn about resources, and be welcomed more fully into the university community. The Conversations will be facilitated by Marilyn Amey, Assistant Provost for Faculty and Academic Staff Development. Please join us! If you have questions, please email the Office of Faculty and Academic Staff Development at OFASD@msu.edu.
