Posted on 4/10/2017 2:12:36 PM

Graduate students, this final seminar of the Spring 2017 semester in the Preparing Future Faculty Series will be held in the Allegheny Room, HUB on Monday, April 17, from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m.

This session will focus on the transition from jobs outside of academia to those inside academia. Faculty discuss their transition from the corporate arena and the public/private sector to academia. The discussion will include the change in culture, mission, focus, and often ideology as one transitions from the applied world to the theoretical or functioning world.
