The COVID-19 pandemic upended nearly every aspect of academia, leading colleges and universities to reexamine how they instruct their students and how they reward their faculty. But the pandemic was not the only disruptive event that took place in 2020. Colleges and universities have been forced to address issues related to productivity, teaching,student learning, mentoring, service, and innovative research in the context of remote or hybrid work - all amplified by the increased attention to and discussion of systemic racism, widespread economic hardships, and extreme environmental events. To help leaders of higher education understand how one particular issue - the current faculty reward, advancement, and hiring system - has changed and continues to change in response to several of the events of 2020, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine commissioned a set of papers. These papers formed the basis for a series of four virtual workshops held on September 20, 23, 27, and 30, 2021. They examined how the events of 2020 have affected existing hiring and advancement policies and practices of institutions of higher education, the differential effects on the promotion and advancement of faculty from different populations, new policies and programs to support faculty, and new approaches that support more equitable faculty advancement. This publication is a short summary of the three workshops on the Next Normal for Leadership and Culture; Recruitment,Retention, and Support; and Advancement of Tenure and Non-Tenure-Track Faculty, as well as the fourth workshop with closing discussions. The presentations were intended to point toward the pandemic and beyond, as well as contextualize how these issues have played out in the last two years.
