Panel Description:
Have you ever sat on a search committee and wondered how a candidate from outside higher education would fit into your team? Are you considering changing functional areas and don’t know how to sell your previous experience? Are you supervising people without a student affairs background and want to learn how to leverage their experience? This panel will talk about their experience coming from outside higher education and movement within and out of student affairs.
