The C3/LADO visits to Columbia University, University of California–Berkeley, University of Chicago, and University of Michigan are designed to cultivate interest in liberal arts colleges and to introduce liberal arts college teaching and scholarship opportunities (to underrepresented graduate students.
Attended by graduate students, as well as LADO and R1 faculty and institutional leaders, these events provide a wealth of information about academic life at liberal arts colleges, the faculty job search process, and the C3 postdoctoral fellowship program.
