Greetings CEPS Students and Alumni-

Thursday this week at Water Tower Campus Professor David Shriberg and I are running a session titled “Getting a Job in Academia” [A.1.] and hoping we can generate a discussion that will be useful to doctoral students, as well as master’s students potentially interested in heading into work as teachers and researchers in higher education. See also the talk on academic writing by William Germano this Friday at the IC on LSC [B.2.]. Lastly, remember that the CIES conference (March, Toronto) [C.1.] deadline is Oct 25th for anyone interested in presenting a paper or a poster. The deadline for the CIES Mid-West Regional Conference (Nov 1-3) [C.2.] has officially passed but the organizers are willing to accept additional papers from Loyola folks (either for the in-person or the virtual format) so feel free to contact them if this is of interest. If you learn of events or opportunities that can be shared via this newsletter please email them to my graduate assistant David Boven at dboven@luc.edu.

~Prof. Noah W. Sobe, CEPS Graduate Program Director
