Higher education is under increasing pressure in a complex sociopolitical environment. Many state schools have had their funding slashed, small colleges have been shuttered, adjuncts now make up 70 percent of all professors, and online education has emerged as competition to the traditional classroom. In this shifting landscape, increasing numbers of MFAs are graduating to find that tenure-track positions are disappearing. For recent graduates, finding employment that provides a living wage in one's academic field may require a new approach. This panel brings together young MFA graduates currently working within different areas of higher education to discuss the evolving academic world that awaits the millennial generation.
