The Board Members of the Tenure-Track Faculty Organization (TFO) welcome your participation!

2019-2020 TFO Board Members

What is the TFO?

The Tenure-Track Faculty Organization was formed in 2009 to provide support and opportunities for professional development to pre-tenure faculty. We meet regularly and offer frequent workshops on matters of interest to junior faculty such as the RTP process, grant funding, teaching, technology and other topics.
