Many faculty enjoy rewarding careers at colleges and universities that primarily emphasize teaching, including liberal arts colleges, community colleges, and regional comprehensive universities. This free one-day regional conference brings together graduate students, postdocs, and faculty to discuss what it’s like to work at teaching intensive institutions and how to apply for these faculty positions. Graduate students and postdocs will engage with faculty and deans from a range of teaching-intensive institutions across the New England region through a series of talks, panel presentations, and networking opportunities.
We are so thankful to all our faculty participants, Westfield State event staff, and fellow professional development and graduate career services folks for all their work in making this year a helpful and inspiring conference! More than 130 graduate students and postdocs participated and we heard so many expressions of gratitude as they left the event.
