Tenure-track faculty may experience uncertainty about their career path. Personal circumstances may necessitate relocation and, therefore, a job search. Sometimes faculty like to develop a "Plan B" just in case they are denied reappointment or tenure. To meet these and other interests and needs, the University's Counseling Center and Career Center provide career assistance to junior faculty. Interested faculty should contact Rhonda Malone, Director of Faculty Mentoring and Development, to arrange free and confidential assistance with a professional career counselor. The counselor can assist faculty with their career and personal concerns, including identifying their interests and skills, exploring career options, and planning and conducting an academic or more general job search.
Recruiting first-rate faculty and academic administrators is a top priority at the University of Maryland. With increasing frequency, top candidates have a spouse or partner who will be seeking employment as well. Therefore when recruiting faculty, it has become important to consider the employment needs of the spouse/partner. In response to that need, the DUAL CAREER ASSISTANCE PROGRAM was created to assist accompanying partners gain knowledge about the unique Washington D.C./Baltimore job market and conduct effective job searches both before and after the move to Maryland.New Faculty Orientation Program
Each year, at the end of August, an orientation program for all new university
faculty is held. The program is for ALL new faculty (all ranks of professors,
lecturers, research faculty, extension agents, visiting faculty).
