Theme: “Invest in Yourself”

CSWF is now accepting applications for our track for the 2017 Summer Faculty Development Conference to be held from May 8 – 11, 2017. Everyone needs to dedicate some time to thinking, learning and acting on topics that matter most to your professional development regardless of your career stage.  Our track will provide you with this time and space.

Our plan is to collaboratively improve our: curriculum vitas, summary/personal statements for awards/promotions, negotiation skills, roadmap our futures, better understand micro-aggressions and bystander engagement, better understand women faculty’s definition of success, plus many additional career-life balance options.
