Doctors without (Departmental) Borders: Professional Pathways in Academic Affairs

Thursday, February 8, 2018
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

You don't need a full-time faculty position to support the academic mission of an institution. Join us for a lively conversation with four PhDs in the humanities/social sciences who play key roles in fostering academic and intellectual work at Duke. Learn how you can put your creativity to work in higher ed administration (all without grading papers).
