Paula Krebs, the Dean for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Bridgewater State University, wrote this wonderful guest post on Vitae, the online career hub at the Chronicle of Higher Education. As stated on their website, “the Chronicle is launching Vitae, which offers free career management tools, a powerful community, and the candid insights that academics need to build successful careers and fulfill their mission.”
In her post she basically addresses the notion of moving beyond the classroom when thinking about student success. She highlights librarians, academic advisors, student affairs staff, the registrar, financial aid, veteran’s affairs, institutional research, etc., as groups that faculty members should get out of their offices and network with on a regular basis.
