Shooting for the Stars: Starting on the Path to Success in Academia

Rebecca Nolan, Jay Gould, Kathleen Robbins, & Jim Stone

Friday, March 13 - 1:00PM to 2:45PM
Celestin BC

This panel is a discussion about navigating the path to successful placement in academia. The moderator will pose questions pertinent to an audience seeking a start and/or a more permanent position in academia. With a growing number of MFA graduates on the streets and fewer jobs to find, how does one attempt to approach the field? Learn the expectations of veteran faculty when hiring young faculty into a tenure position, full time position, or adjunct position. The discussion will touch on how to best prepare for C.A.A., putting together a teaching packet, and preparing for a successful interview. The panel will be open to questions from the audience. The purpose of this panel is to create a dialogue and uncover some of the mystery surrounding the process of successful career placement in higher education.
