The SMC Board of Governors requests nominations for the SMC Annual New Faculty Colloquium (NFC) to be held Sunday, October 9th, 2022. This event will be conducted on the day prior to the start of the main SMC conference.

The event is designed to support the professional growth of faculty who are within the first three years of a tenure-track Assistant Professor appointment. The colloquium will provide information and experiences to help participants successfully navigate the challenges of an academic career on the way to tenure and promotion. The colloquium will be highly interactive, with presentations by senior scholars and discussions amongst all participants. Illustrative topics include

  • Developing and sustaining an independent research program
  • Publishing and other forms of scholarship
  • Recruiting and collaborating with graduate students
  • Establishing a teaching portfolio
  • Undertaking service to your profession

The colloquium is sponsored by the SMC Society. While space is limited, the colloquium is free to all early career faculty either with a signed job offer or an appointment as Assistant Professor. Early nominations are encouraged as space will be limited to the first 35 accepted nominations.

Attendees must register separately for the SMC annual conference. Meals (continental breakfast, lunch, and reception) are to be provided during the program. Any other expenses for the SMC Conference (e.g., travel, registration) are the responsibility of the nominee or the nominating entity. Further details on the colloquium will be published on this page.

  • A personal statement or statement from your department chair/head (in an email) providing a justification for your attendance; and
  • Your current curriculum vitae (CV) in electronic format (PDF).
