Abstract

Concerned about reports from pre-tenure-track scholars about the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 12 members of the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare Board of Directors charged a group of its members to explore concerns and gather suggestions for social work and other higher education administrators. The following commentary reports their findings, reflecting broadly experienced challenges, gender inequities, and experiences of pretenure faculty of color. We end with seven recommendations for helping pre-tenure-track scholars to succeed in their careers despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
