Academic Politics for New & Contingent Faculty, blog - Icebergs in cold waters

Navigating academic politics is not for the faint of heart, especially for new and contingent faculty. Our jobs often feel like they rely on staying in everyone’s good graces, even when the political landscape makes that impossible. How can we navigate those politics while keeping our focus on what matters most to us about our jobs?

In this webinar, Dr. Kate Drabinski discusses how to recognize academic politics, navigate them while keeping our jobs, and find ways to organize and find solidarity when necessary.
