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 opportunities to underrepresented graduate students.
Attended by graduate students, as well as by LADO and university faculty and institutional leaders, these events provide a wealth of information about academic life at liberal arts colleges and the faculty job search process. Through shared meals, discipline-specific workshops, and drop-in Q&A sessions, attendees establish personal connections and discover opportunities for collaboration.
On February 21, faculty members from LADO and C3 institutions virtually visited the Rackham Graduate School at the University of Michigan to speak with graduate students and postdocs. See here for a recording of the main roundtable, “Academic and Social Life at Liberal Arts Colleges.”
