PACIS 2023 JUNIOR FACULTY CONSORTIUM

Call for JFC submissions

The PACIS 2023 continues to host Junior Faculty Consortium. The Consortium is aimed at supporting junior IS faculty from a variety of schools in (but not limited to) the AIS Region 3 (Pacific-Asia Region). This workshop is designed for untenured junior faculty members to be prepared for opportunities and challenges in early-stage academics and facilitate the desired professional career development.

The Consortium will provide an intimate forum for interacting and discussing with faculty mentors, a group of distinguished senior colleagues and mid-career peers who have recently done their tenure review process. The one-day program includes a combination of feedback, panels, and discussion sessions that cover a variety of topics, including planning research, teaching, and service careers, managing the tenure-track journey (e.g., satisfying publication requirements, meeting tenure criteria, etc.), and strategies for networking and work-life balance. Details and any adjustments will be provided accordingly.
