Sundar A. Christopher’s academic early career guide covers how to reach tenure through service, research, and teaching while empowering your graduate students and maintaining balance between your career and personal life. He uses his own experience and hypothetical situations to illustrate best practices in goal setting, developing leadership amid institutional politics, and mentoring. With a strong focus on research and tenure application, this is the guide Dr. Christopher wishes he had when he was navigating tenure, and it will be a key companion in many future professors’ development.
