Session Is Over
Assembly Hall, 4th Floor, Rackham Building

Faculty from top liberal arts colleges are coming to University of Michigan on October 21 and 22 to promote greater diversity in the faculty at their institutions. Attendees will have the rare opportunity to meet one-on-one with a faculty member to discuss their individual job application portfolio materials (CVs, teaching philosophies, research statements, diversity statements, etc.) and hear about job opportunities at these colleges. Attendees will also hear about work-life at a liberal arts college and network with faculty, administrators, and diversity officers from participating colleges. Registration is required.
