The Seattle AWIS Monthly Programming Series presents: 

“Non-Traditional Roles in Education”

April 15th, 2015 • 6:00 pm – 8:15 pm

Is it possible to stay in higher education without becoming a faculty member?

Seeking an industry job is great for people who want to continue their research careers beyond the tenure track, but what about those of us who are passionate about education? Our panelists will discuss their roles and paths to non-traditional roles in higher education that offer greater stability than adjuncting.  Please join Seattle AWIS as we explore how to leverage your background as a scientist into a fulfilling career in education. Our distinguished panelists are:

  • Naomi Bogenschutz, Ph.D., Program Manager, University of Washington Professional & Continuing Education
  • Stephanie Diemel, M.S., eLearning Faculty-in-Residence, Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Shoreline Community College
  • Michèle Royer, Ph.D., Research and Evaluation Specialist, Bellevue College

Event Schedule:

6:00pm – Networking and Refreshments
6:30pm – Panel Discussion
7:45pm – Networking

Pre-registration is not required for this event.

Volunteer for an AWIS Committee!

We invite you to share your ideas and talents and expand your network of colleagues by volunteering for an AWIS committee. You can serve for an entire year or even just a single event or task! We especially invite you to join the Programming Committee– this is one of the most active and exciting parts of our organization. All of our committees actively recruit throughout the year to help generate new ideas and engage our members: this helps us create programming, special events, and chapter tools that are tailored to our current, up-to-the-minute interests and recruit new members. We hope to see all of our members take the opportunity to volunteer with a committee and more deeply engage our chapter. We can’t wait to work with you!

The Seattle AWIS scholarship program was launched in 1990 to provide financial assistance to undergraduate women who are majoring in science, math or engineering fields at four-year colleges and universities in Washington State. More than $175,000 in scholarships have been awarded since then. Scholarship recipients are selected based on academic excellence, financial need, motivation to pursue a science-based career, and a record of giving back to their communities. Many scholarship recipients have found that receiving an AWIS scholarship is validating and gives them increased self-confidence to go for their dreams and goals and that this support from a group of women whom they admire is as important as the financial support.
