a2ru webinar to explore fate of cluster hires and cross-discipline appointments
The Alliance for the Arts in Research Universities’ Circuits: Conversations in the Field series continues with a webinar on “Cluster Hires and Cross-Discipline Appointments” from 1 to 2:30 p.m. CDT Friday, April 13. “Cluster hires” was an exciting trend that peaked a few years ago with many research institutions seriously piloting ambitious programs to kick-start interdisciplinary research and diversify campus climate. In this installment, a2ru checks in with the University of Cincinnati, the University of Kansas and Virginia Tech on the promise and perils of hiring outside the comfort zone. Guest speaker bios may be found on the a2ru website. Register online. You can also email questions for the panelists in advance.
This webinar will be recorded and made available on the a2ru website in the weeks following.
