Learn about what it’s like to serve as faculty at teaching focused institutions, and how their search committees assess candidates. Panelists from a range of disciplines will talk about their experiences.

Lunch will be served noon-1:00 pm, followed by a presentation by representatives from Cal State East Bay which expects to fill 25 tenure-track positions both this year and next.
