Interested in a career in Higher Education?

The Career Management Center invites you to a panel presentation, OUT in Your Career: Finding Your Right Fit in Higher Education on Fri, Feb 28, 2-3PM in the Burgess Room (9th Floor, Batten Arts & Letters). The focus of this panel is diversity in the workplace at an institution of higher education. Four panelists will speak about their experiences of being open with their identities:

- Tom Chapman, Ph.D. Assistant Professor of Geography
- Tyler L. Fortman, Ph.D. Assistant Director, Office of Student Conduct & Academic Integrity
- Jeff Moe, PhD, NCC, CCMHC Assistant Professor of Counseling
- Dr. Jeanne Natali Director of Intercultural Learning at TCC

The primary focus will be on the experiences of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) professionals; however, issues of gender, race and religion may also come into play based on the panelists' experiences. The panelists hope to create a conversation surrounding diverse identities in the culture of higher education.

Topics to be discussed include: how to find a diverse and welcoming career in higher education; finding the right graduate and post-graduate institution based on acceptance and inclusion; and overall career advice from professionals. The audience will be invited to ask questions following the panel discussion.
