NECTAR is the Network for Early Career Teachers, Academics and Researchers at ANU, an initiative led by and for early-career academics (ECAs).
The NECTAR team runs a broad program with three main themes:
- Community – NECTAR provides a safe space for ECAs to share their experiences with others who can relate, and find support in navigating the challenges of academia.
- Professional development – NECTAR delivers a professional development program helping ECAs develop skills needed to thrive in academia and beyond.
- Advocacy – NECTAR facilitates a direct collegial discussion with the University Executive, enabling ECAs to make a difference to the ECA experience at ANU.
