About the event

WSU faculty are invited to attend a virtual workshop entitled: You Aren’t Alone: Burnout Resilience in Challenging Times

The last three years have been challenging, to say the very least, and the ongoing trauma of the pandemic and shake-ups on our campuses have impacted both faculty and students. Many faculty were on the edge of burnout before 2020, and the swings between in-person to remote and back again have tested the coping skills of the strongest faculty members. In this workshop, we will explore what burnout is and how to recognize it, examine two lenses through which to look at burnout resilience – purpose and connection, and brainstorm action steps for dealing with burnout.

The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Rebecca Pope-Ruark, author of Unraveling Faculty Burnout: Pathways to Reckoning and Renewal (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2022) and Agile Faculty: Practical Strategies for Managing Research, Service, and Teaching (University of Chicago Press, 2017). She is the director of the Office of Faculty Professional Development at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, GA and host of The Agile Academic, a podcast for women in higher education.
