Pilot coaching program aims to help newly tenured faculty

The Post-Promotion Academic Career Exploration, or PACE, program is designed to support faculty as they meet new career opportunities and challenges after promotion.

The PACE program’s design reflects the importance of addressing the needs of senior faculty, as demonstrated in an evidence-based research summary report from ADVANCE. Additionally, ADVANCE brings a depth of experience to this program from more than 20 years of providing faculty programming and support.
