FDIC Faculty Reading Groups

The Spring 2023 Faculty Engaged Reading Community is reading "Unraveling Faculty Burnout" by Rebecca Pope-Ruark.

This Faculty Learning Community (FLC) will focus on an integral reading of Pope-Ruark's book and discuss and practice strategies for reckoning with burnout and renewing our work as faculty members. There will be an in-person reading group meeting on Tuesday mornings in the FDIC and a virtual reading group meeting on Zoom on Wednesday afternoons.

We will consider questions such as:

  • What is the definition of burnout?
  • What is particular about faculty burnout?
  • What does burnout look like in our daily lives? And in our work?
  •  What can we do to reckon our burnout and renew ourselves?

Enrollment includes a free copy of the book compliments of the FDIC as well as warm beverages, snacks, & good conversation. Limited to 10 participants in each group.
