Grad Students and Post Docs Invited to Discuss and Network with Liberal Arts Colleges Reps

You are invited to join us for a morning discussion and networking lunch with representives from LADO (Liberal Arts Diversity Officers), a consortium of 31 liberal arts colleges and universities.

This is an opportunity to learn about careers at liberal arts colleges and to get specific advice about how to prepare for the application process in advance as well as when you are actually ready to enter the job market. LADO is particularly interested in attracting graduate students and postdocs from historically underrepresented groups to the event and to apply for faculty positions at these schools.
