The workshop is structured to promote an open discussion of three topics relevant to power dynamics within conflict situations. We will first identify sources of power in the academic workplace. Next we will explore how faculty holding formal power (chairpersons, program directors, committee chairs, and senior faculty) can engage with conflicts in ways that improve interpersonal relations and thereby enhance workplace climate. Then we will explore how faculty in vulnerable positions (junior or untenured faculty, instructors, PRAs, and members of protected classes) can more fully enjoy the benefits of an academic career by learning how to stand up for themselves in an effective fashion. As we explore these three topics, we will also identify misuses of power, such as inappropriate aggressive behaviors.
This workshop is for any and all faculty on campus. Space is very limited so please RSVP early!
Please join us on Nov. 7, from 12:30-2 p.m. in Regent 302, please RSVP by Nov. 2 to firstname.lastname@example.org
