C3-LADO at University of Chicago

The C3-LADO Faculty Recruitment visit to the University of Chicago begins today! Organized by UChicagoGRAD in conjunction with the GRADUCon career conference, the C3-LADO visit will offer a day and a half of networking, panel discussions, and one-on-one meetings about tenure-track careers at liberal arts colleges.
