    This session is intended to provide participants with practical, concrete advice about how to set a scholarly agenda, to manage internal and external reviews, and to position oneself for success. In the context of this discussion, speakers will identify things they came to know post-tenure that they wish they had known pretenure. They will focus their remarks on how to successfully navigate the tenure and promotion process.  Topics will include how to balance scholarship with teaching and service, how to build an external support network, and how to overcome common obstacles often encountered by teachers and scholars of color. Attendees will learn tips for developing and maintaining professional relationships with teachers, scholars, and others inside and outside of their home institutions: advice on which conferences, colloquia, and workshops to attend and how they can enhance scholarship and help interpreting retention letters, including what to do if your review is successful, but there are weaknesses or areas of concern.
