Advice for New Faculty

Whether in the humanities, law, or elsewhere, Tenured Radical has advice for new faculty, including:
  • Saying 'thank you' is perhaps one of the most underrated academic skills I know.

  • If you do something that harms the interests of another untenured person, no matter how unconscious or innocent it was, a lot of people will view you as a snake, and not just your peers.

  • Do not have sex with anyone you work with this year. Wait until next year, when people know other things about you. [And even then, hands off the students!]

And much more, with great photos, right here.
