Two of the C3 partner institutions: Columbia University and the University of Michigan, will host C3/LADO 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, 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.
2018 visit dates include:
Michigan: October 25 and 26
While these events are designed specifically for underrepresented graduate students, including students from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds and students of color, all graduate students are welcome to attend. Registration is required.
The C3/LADO visits are designed to cultivate interest in liberal arts colleges and to provide feedback on faculty job-application materials
