These seminars are designed to help young professionals develop, learn and network alongside their colleagues in an effort to nourish successful and satisfying careers in higher education. Whether a faculty or staff member hoping to pursue a career in higher education, we extend an open invitation to join us for programming that will help you make the most of your career.
