AcaDames: Living and Working towards Tenure
Magaldi-Dopman, Danielle; Marshall, Anne Marie; Rivera-McCutchen, Rosa L.; Roberts, Laura A.
Journal of Faculty Development, v29 n3 p37-42 Sep 2015
This study examined the experiences of the "AcaDames," a faculty support group of five female pre-tenure faculty members, including two women of color. Qualitative analysis of a sample of meeting transcripts suggests that the peer mentorship group afforded accountability, professional and emotional support, collaboration, and consultations to junior faculty. Results also indicate that the construction of co-mentorship models may benefit historically underrepresented faculty.
