Planning your Academic Career for Upcoming Professors (PAC-UP)

Planning Your Academic Career (PAC-UP) Virtual Edition, Prepare, Apply, Interview, Negotiate. Graphic with classical architectural details in background.

In 2020-2021, PAC-UP is going virtual.

Instead of in-person programs, we are offering Virtual PAC-UP: a series of short videos with frequent accompanying workshops on Zoom. Sign up for Virtual PAC-UP to receive announcements about these videos and workshops every one to two weeks from August through December. If you're applying to faculty positions this cycle or interested in the process, we recommend signing up. Once you sign up, we'll keep you on track and supported through the whole application process.
