Associate Professors report low levels of job satisfaction and many experience what has been termed a “mid-career slump”.  This paper presents information about a unique faculty developmen program designed especially for mid-career faculty. The Center for Teaching. Learning, and Scholarship worked with author and executive coach Jason Womack to modify his Get Momentum program especially for higher ed faculty.  Two distinct cohorts of faculty (n=38) completed this year-long program, and most have expressed high levels of satisfaction and some have reported transformative professional experiences as a result.  The paper will share an overview of our program and discuss ways that elements of the program can be introduced at other colleges and universities.
