Presentation Title Successfully Transitioning from a Teaching-Intensive to a Research-Intensive University while on the Tenure-Track

Abstract Scope The objective of this talk is to discuss strategies and best practices for tenure-track faculty members to successfully transition from a teaching-intensive university to a research-intensive university. The Millennial workforce seeks greater career mobility than previous generations, leading to increased job-hopping. In academia, this means growing numbers of early career faculty moving between institutions while on the tenure-track. This talk will specifically focus on moving from a teaching-intensive to a research-intensive university. We will discuss successful strategies for navigating the unique challenges of building a research program at a teaching-intensive university. In particular, we will share best practices for effective recruitment and mentoring of students, grantwriting, smart investment of startup funds, and building strategic collaborations, all specifically at a small, teaching-intensive university. Finally, we will discuss approaches for highlighting these experiences when seeking a position at a research-intensive university.
