C3/LADO Visits Announced

The C3/LADO visits are designed to cultivate interest in liberal arts colleges and to provide feedback on faculty job-application materials. See here for upcoming visit dates.

The two-day visits 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 CVs and cover letters.

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.

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), 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.
