Late career facuty often find themselves uniquely situated between conflicting sentiments. On the one hand they have a sense of pride in the accomplishments of a long career and a sense of community with colleagues and students. On the other hand they are faced with uncertainty as the ground shifts beneath them -- with university consolidation, ever-evolving trends in teaching and scholarship, and retirement on the not-too-distant horizon. Is this a time for teaching innovation, legacy--building, preparing to launch into a new adventure, or simply waiting it out? This book club will seek to build community among late career faculty as we discuss Susan Robison's framework for navigating this phase, outlined in The Peak Performing Professor.
