Title: Pathways from Graduate Study at Bryn Mawr

Summary: Bryn Mawr’s graduate programs opened many doors to career options for me, for fellow graduate students of my era, and to graduate students I taught from 1980 to 1998. I will review and reflect on domestic and international opportunities and how they remain open for graduates of the current era.  Perspectives gained from faculty hiring and faculty development work at nine domestic colleges and universities and a dozen international universities will be shared as part of an optimistic discussion of the future of higher education and how best to prepare to contribute to that future.
