Purdue University Conference for Assistant Professors
Navigating Academia to Achieve Promotion: You can make it happen!

In collaboration with the Provost’s Office at Purdue University, the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence hosts an annual Conference for Assistant Professors (previously called Conference for Pre-Tenure Women). Since 2010, this conference has helped pre-tenure faculty not only achieve promotion and tenure, but also develop career strategies and networks useful for moving into further promotions and into different academic areas. The 2020 conference will be held virtually on October 6 and 7, 2020. Note that West Lafayette, IN is on Eastern Standard Time.

Program Support

The Office of the Provost at Illinois provides limited funding assistance for full-time, pre-tenure and specialized faculty at the assistant professor rank to participate in this annual conference. This funding covers the registration cost for the conference.
