Future Faculty Event to Enhance Diversity at Liberal Arts Colleges
October 26, 2018, 8:30 am to 12:00 pm EDT
Faculty from top liberal arts colleges are coming to University of Michigan on October 25 and 26 to promote greater diversity in the faculty at their institutions. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to meet one-on-one with a faculty member to discuss your individual job application portfolio materials (CVs, teaching philosophies, research statements, etc.) and hear about job opportunities at their colleges. Students who attend will also hear about work-life at a liberal arts college and get to network with faculty, administrators, and diversity officers from participating colleges.
Pre-registration is required at myumi.ch/L1VE3.
