Please see sign up below for two workshops by Dr. Kerry Ann Rockquemore, known nationally for her "writing bootcamps." She will offer two workshops on this day for all Whitman faculty. You will need to register for each workshop separately.
The first (9:00-12:00) is on strategies for increasing scholarly productivity, and will be designed to be useful both for pre-tenure faculty and for faculty at later stages of their careers. Dr. Rockquemore and I will be communicating about the participants who sign up for the workshop so that she can best tailor it to fit our needs.
The second workshop (1:30-3:00), is "Re-Thinking Mentoring: How to Build Communities of Inclusion, Support & Accountability." She will design this workshop to be relevant not only to campus leaders, such as department chairs, but also to junior faculty interested in the topic of mentoring.
Kerry Ann Rockquemore, PhD is President 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 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 (at the University of Illinois at Chicago), her focus shifted to improving conditions for pre-tenure faculty by creating supportive communities for professional development, 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. Through the NCFDD, Dr. Rockquemore provides workshops for faculty at colleges across the United States, writes a weekly advice column for Inside Higher Education, and works with a select group of new faculty each semester in the NCFDD’s Faculty Success Program.
