Abstract

Tenure track faculty members often find that the tenure process is very time consuming. This means that the successful tenure-track faculty member must find ways of balancing one’s career with one’s personal life. This paper presents perspectives for three new faculty members currently going through the tenure process at Texas A&M University. It concludes by summarizing some of the common issues facing new faculty and proposing solutions.
