Faculty at all career levels are concerned about issues of work-life balance. To help you better understand and achieve work-life balance, the Center for Academic Excellence teamed with a doctoral intern to develop research-based webcasts. The strategies offered in the webcasts will help you find balance (or rather "accord") as you face the many tensions of working in academia.
The Truth About Work-Life Balance
Module One is an invitation to reframe ideas about balance between the home and the work spheres.
Another Day, Another Dollar: Work
Module Two focuses on life at work, including strategies which should help tackle daily tensions between work and life outside the office of our classroom.
How I Love Thee? Relationships
Module Three focuses on relationships, chiefly with a romantic partner, although much of this advice can be applied to relationships with key friends and colleagues.
The Pitter Patter: Children
Module Four focuses on children, including strategies which should help with demands of being a working parent.
