Virtual Happy Hour: Faculty Burnout
Thursday, March 18, 2021, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM CDT
Category: Professional Development

Burnout is a problem in academe even in the best of times. Shrinking budgets, growing workloads, and job insecurity in a profession where self-sufficiency is both expected and prized put many faculty members at risk before Covid-19 placed higher education on even shakier footing. Join us for an open discussion to share practical resources that shed light on the load we're all carrying, ways to re-strategize, and suggestions for juggling it all.

This event is for MCCA members only and pre-registration is required. 

About MCCA Virtual Happy Hours

Whether you're working remotely or back in your campus office, times of stress make it all too easy to put your head down and focus entirely on work. We're shaking that up with the introduction of our monthly Virtual Happy Hours.

We know what you're thinking: Virtual happy hours? We're on video conference calls all day. But that face-to-face interaction—even if it's virtual—is more important than ever now. It's a replacement for all the conferences and in-person meetups that've been canceled over the past 12 months.

Our Virtual Happy Hours—or discussion groups—allow for networking, mentorship, and other professional and personal development opportunities.

All sessions are capped at 20 participants to allow for real conversations to happen and ensure that everyone has a chance to have their voice heard. We celebrate the diversity of our staff, our board, our members, and the partners with whom we work. Through MCCA's Virtual Happy Hour events, we welcome, embrace, and respect people's diversity, identities, and cultures. We're committed to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusion.

We hope you'll join us or suggest a topic you'd like to participate in.
