Academic Networks

Building a network of support

Offered through the Faculty Development Program, the University’s Academic Networks connect academics to one another in informal settings to share resources, stories, and support across schools and divisions. Each academic network focuses on the experiences of a particular academic group.

Currently there are four Academic Networks:

  • New Academics Network
  • Academic Women’s Network
  • Academics of Color Network
  • Academics with Young Children Network

Each provides opportunities to socialize with colleagues and connect to valuable resources on and off campus, with the ultimate goal of creating connections and promoting opportunities for faculty to discuss shared interests and concerns.

Additional Academic Networks will be created in the coming year based on interest and affinity. Register for a network, or get more information by emailing academic_development@uchicago.edu.
