C3 partner institutions, the University of California at Berkeley, Columbia University, and the University of Michigan, will host C3/LADO faculty-recruitment visits on their campuses in September and October.
The two-day visits will provide graduate students entering the academic job market with information about pursuing academic careers and diversifying the faculty at liberal arts colleges. Faculty and academic affairs administrators from liberal arts colleges including Bates, Connecticut, Reed, Middlebury, and Williams are scheduled to participate in presentations, workshops, and panel discussions. A limited number of individual meetings will be available to provide feedback on job application materials, including C.V.s and cover letters.
Visit dates include:
UC Berkeley: September 26 and 27 (please register by September 16 at http://tinyurl.com/BerkeleyC32016)
Columbia: October 17 and 18 (registration details to come)
Michigan: October 10 and 11 (registration details to come)
While these events are designed specifically for underrepresented graduate students, including students from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, students of color, and disabled students, all graduate students entering the job market this year are welcome to attend. Registration is required.
The C3/LADO visits are designed to cultivate interest in liberal arts colleges and to introduce liberal arts college teaching to underrepresented graduate students.
Launched in 2012 and funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, C3-Creating Connections Consortium seeks to promote full participation in higher education by building capacity, investing in cohorts of talented graduate students and faculty from underrepresented groups, and creating and nurturing connections between organizations committed to institutional change. In partnership with the Liberal Arts Diversity Officers Consortium (LADO) and the Center for Institutional and Social Change at Columbia Law School, C3’s member institutions include Bates College, Connecticut College, Middlebury College, and Williams College, as well as Columbia University, University of California at Berkeley, University of Chicago, and University of Michigan.
