Collegial Advice for Assistant Professors
Hints for Success and Stress Reduction as an Assistant Professor at UC Davis

This “handbook” of advice was written by the late Dr. Evelyn M. Silvia, Professor of Mathematics and a STEM faculty leader at UC Davis. It offers practical, actionable advice drawn from her own experience and from the advice of members of the Faculty Women’s Research Support Group. Although the advice was gathered in the 1970s and 1980s, it applies equally for women faculty in the 21st century.
