Gear Up is a faculty search committee training program that will help participants learn up-to-date skills and gain knowledge to maintain consistent, effective, and unbiased faculty searches as well as explore best practices for attracting and retaining the best and most representative faculty possible. This engaging professional development workshop uses a live interactive theater performance by PowerPlay Interactive Development to highlight challenges that committees often face and discuss best practices for the faculty search process, as well as the impact of microagressions and unconscious bias on a faculty search.
Where are you on your path to tenure? Where do you want to go? The UNH ADVANCE Pathways to Tenure program is specifically designed for assistant professors.

With panel presentations and small group discussions with UNH Deans, Department Chairs, and Senior Colleagues, you will develop ideas, tools and strategies for achieving your professional goals.
