Second Year Experience Program
for Tenure-Track Faculty 2014 – 2015

The 2nd Year Experience Program for Tenure Candidates came into being as a result of feedback from faculty in the 1st Year Experience Program. New faculty indicated that they would appreciate meeting during the Tenure process to continue to receive information, updates, mentorship, coaching and support. This program meets once a term during the candidate’s 2nd academic tenure review year at De Anza. The Fall workshop will be standard (re: Tenure Review) but the other 2 sessions will be flexible to meet the needs of each cohort. See the 1st Year Experience list for options or other topics may be developed. If candidates choose the “Show me the Money” workshop that is a 2 hour workshop.

Fall Quarter

This interactive session for Tenure Candidates is designed to

  • check in on the Tenure Process for each candidate
  • review the timeline and due dates for Phase II activities
  • engage in a review and conversation regarding the writing each candidate’s personal professional Phase II Tenure Review Evaluation. 

The workshop is facilitated by the Tenure Review Coordinator and the Director of the Office of Staff & Organizational Development.
