ATHE’s Professional Development Committee is comprised of several subcommittees including the Assessment Subcommittee, Contingent Faculty Subcommittee, Chairs and Deans Subcommittee, Graduate Student Subcommittee, the Leadership Institute Subcommittee, the Pedagogy Subcommittee,and the Tenure and Promotion Guidelines Subcommittee.

The Professional Development Committee is looking for new members for all of these subcommittees, and is particularly invested in finding new participants among our members of color, and our LGBTQIA+ membership.

We are also presently seeking faculty with expertise in Applied Theatre, Digital Technology, Dramaturgy, Performance Studies, experience as a dean, and experience in tenure and promotion systems outside of the United States to consult on an update to ATHE’s Tenure and Promotion Guidelines.

Cross-List your ATHE 2020 Panels with the Professional Development Committee


In 2019, the Professional Development Committee sponsored or co-sponsored 19 panels at the Orlando conference and we’d love to support even more, if we’re able. If your proposed panel intersects with one of the Professional Development Committees subcommittees, reach out to VP for Professional Development Noe Montez with questions.

In the 2019-2020 year, the Professional Development Committee hopes to present the organization with:

1) Cultivating Leadership: A Primer for Academic Programs, edited by Marc A. Hecker and Bobbi O. Korver, creators of the ATHE Leadership Institute. The book should be available for purchase by the end of the year.

2) A white paper on Programmatic Assessment, authored by Jane Duncan, Travis Malone, Bradley Rogers.

3) New data on career placement for PhDs in Theatre and Performance Studies, as well as MFAs in Directing and Dramaturgy programs across the United States.

4. An update to ATHE’s Tenure and Promotion Guidelines.

Please watch out for this information and more! If you would like to be involved in any way, please contact Vice President for Professional Development Noe Montez.
