Academic Advancement: Cultivating Program Faculty
Bill Galvin MSEd RRT CPFT AE-C FAARC, Gwynedd Valley PA
While an RT program faculty member is exceedingly busy with day-to-day teaching, administrative responsibilities, and clinical assignments, it is imperative that he/she invest the time and effort for personal and professional growth and development. Consideration of one’s academic advancement and career enhancement is not without merit. It should be an integral part of his/her professional goals and developmental plan. It is not uncommon for program faculty to dedicate their time exclusively to their students and to institutional responsibilities. This presentation will address the criticality of developing an academic advancement plan and striving to achieve promotion to professorial rank, achievement of tenure, committee involvement, scholarship, and service. Additionally, it will identify criteria for advancement and the multiple ways to actualize your plan.
