Transforming the Culture of Post-Doctoral Humanities Careers

Thematic convenings at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee designed to expand career options for doctoral students particularly through the lens of curricular development, faculty training to learn how to mentor beyond the academy, and the creation of alumni advisors.

This project will plan for a major overhaul of career preparation for humanities doctoral students at UW-Milwaukee. We recognize that current career training is too narrowly focused on academic employment, as many doctoral graduates eventually pursue other careers. The project brings together a planning committee of more than 20 people, and includes faculty from the humanities and humanistic social sciences at UWM, upper administration including the provost and the dean of the Graduate School, graduate students from humanities fields, administrative staff, faculty from the UWM School of Business, alumni working in non-academic careers, and representatives from business and non-profit sectors. We intend to divide the planning into three areas, each overseen by a separate subcommittee: Curriculum Development, Faculty Education, and Alumni Support.
