Mid-Career Faculty Member and Stuck?

I am sorry that I took such a long hiatus from the CFE Blog – spring semester was a wild ride.

I saw this opinion/advice piece today in InsideHigherEd.com and thought it might be a good idea to post it now, during the summer, when some of you, who might be feeling “mid-career stuck” could have a chance to think about the issues you are facing.

I’ve heard from a few about how once tenure is granted, it’s like you fall off the face of the earth. There is a very big shift that takes place. And, recently there was an article about the tremendous dissatisfaction that exists at the associate professor level (you can read about that study here, too).

If you’re finding yourself a bit adrift, check this out for some ideas on how to get “unstuck.”Read this piece and feel free to post a comment about it here for your colleagues.
