New international faculty often face unique challenges in adapting to a different academic culture. This webinar, "Global Mentoring: Strategies for International Faculty Success," will take place on Thursday, April 11, 2024, from 1:30 – 3 p.m. (CDT) and serves as a resource to facilitate that adaptation.

This event convenes veteran faculty from international destinations to share their advice and experiences with early career international faculty members. Topics to be covered include navigating university administration, promotion and tenure, juggling research and teaching, and maintaining a healthy work/life balance.
