As faculty reach mid-career, their professional development needs can change.  The goals of tenure, promotion, or long-term contracts may no longer be guiding metrics, and career paths may not be as clear.  Mid-Career faculty may find themselves over-tasked with the demands of their students, the university, and their disciplines and struggle to carve out time to re-evaluate their goals.
