What is it like to teach and do research at a small Liberal Arts College?  What are the expectations regarding teaching, research, and service?  How is working at a college different from working at a Research 1 University? How do faculty remain active researchers while carrying a plentiful teaching load and without the help of graduate students?  What are search committees looking for?  What can I do to make myself a strong candidate for a position at a small Liberal Arts College?  If you've had these questions and haven't known whom to ask, come hear the experiences and advice of Dr. Wendy Morris who earned her Ph.D. from UVA and is now an Associate Professor of Psychology, the Associate Dean of Faculty Development, and has served on many search committees at McDaniel College in Maryland.  Bring all of your questions! Click here to register today!

We will also be holding a small "Meet the Speaker" breakfast with Dr. Morris on Tuesday, Oct. 13 - Click here for details.

These events are co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence Tomorrow's Professor Today program and the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs.
