“What I Wish I’d Known About Faculty Life: The Tenure Track, Etc.”

Kevin Birth has been doing a great series on what he wishes he’d known before launching into faculty life.  His most recent post is on the trials and tribulations of the tenure track.  Definitely worth a read.

And let me just take this opportunity to give a plug for The Emerging Scholar’s Blog.  The blog is a fantastic resource for grad students, faculty, or anyone considering a life in the academy.  “The mission of ESN is to identify, encourage, and equip the next generation of Christian scholars who seek to be a redeeming influence within higher education.”  The whole idea of trying to integrate our faith, life and scholarship, trying to “educate for shalom,” trying to be authentically Christian in the (post-?, late-?)modern university and getting tenured, starting a family, and having a life seems pretty overwhelming.  Contributors to the Emerging Scholars Blog are grad students and faculty who are in the mix—they know the challenges and are, by the grace of God, finding ways to make it work.
