9:30-10:30 Panel 1: Building An Ecosystem For Academic Impact And Productivity
In the first panel, we will hold a discussion of the various “internal” and “external” roles available post tenure, including their definition, benefits/disadvantages, etc. Examples of such roles include Department Chair, Associate Dean, Dean, Research Center Director, Provost, etc. Panelists will offer brief presentations to discuss their current and previous roles across their career paths.
Lead Panelists: Jason Thatcher, Christina Soh, Patrick Chau

10:45-11:45 Panel 2: Building An Ecosystem For Impact Beyond Academia
In the second panel, we focus on discussing impact beyond academia. Panelists will share experiences about shaping interdisciplinary research and innovation for working on broader challenges, about engaging business and society, as well as about entrepreneurial activity.
Lead Panelists: Ritu Agarwal, Alan Dennis
Across both panels, the panelists are asked to help participants establish a plan of action for the next few years, post-tenure. The focus will be upon establishing a plan for achieving the roles participants hope to attain in their career, identifying the relationships and resources needed to accomplish these goals, and more. Additional potential aspects to discuss will include further promotions (i.e. to Full Professor), changing universities, and more.
