Enter through the front doors of the MAC and after passing through turnstile head upstairs. The Lounge Area is straight ahead at the top of the stairs, next to the indoor jogging track.

How do you negotiate service, research and teaching "opportunities" as a junior faculty without ruffling feathers? How do you discern which opportunities may benefit your career and which can drag you down by eating up precious time? Are there gender differences in negotiating for one's best interests? College of Business Dean Dr. Rachel Croson will discuss strategies for responding to these questions and help us learn about our BATNA.

Please RSVP with Nadine Douditski by Monday, April 6.
