Date: Thursday, May 25, 2017 (8:30 am – 5:00 pm)
Location: Conference Hotel
Registration Fee: $50.00 USD registration fee for doctoral students
This interactive preconference is an ICA Organizational Communication tradition! This full-day workshop brings together doctoral students and faculty to examine contemporary issues related to the development of our next generation of scholars. During this interactive session, faculty mentors will help advanced doctoral students think about how to develop their professional identities locally (in their home institutions and communities) and globally. We will address topics such as: (a) transitioning from graduate school to becoming a professional colleague; (b) cultivating one’s professional identity with novel research approaches; (c) publishing one’s work; (d) cultivating collaborations with new colleagues and disciplines; and (e) advancing identities related to teaching and engagement.
Faculty mentors include:
- J. Kevin Barge, Texas A&M University
- William Barley, University of Illinois
- Brenda Berkelaar, The University of Texas at Austin
- Boris Brummans, University of Montreal
- Patrice Buzzanell, Purdue University
- Heather Canary, University of Utah

- Amanda Porter, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
