Altacs in Academe: Theory and Practice

April 9, 2015 @ 5:00 am - 6:30 pm

Public Lecture: What Is the Futore of #Altac?

With full-time, tenure-track jobs increasingly scarce, more Ph.D.’s are going into #altac (alternative academic) positions. As a result, altac professionals are becoming essential personnel upon whom universities and faculty rely; however, it is not always clear what the role of Ph.D.-credentialed #altac staff is (or should be) within the university and what value they bring to the research and teaching missions of the university. This talk will examine the role of #altac staff and suggest strategies for how universities can better understand the contributions of this cohort and support them.
