Transforming Scholarly Preparation in the Humanities at the Doctoral Level

Planning activities at the State University of New York at Binghamton (SUNY Birmingham) that include thematic considerations of student internship and assistantship programs, management of student skill development, alumni mentoring programs, and methods for increasing faculty acceptance of non-academic careers.

SUNY Binghamton proposes to discuss, explore, and develop five avenues for improving doctoral education in the humanities and help doctoral students translate what they have learned into successful careers, including 1) systematically developing internships and non-academic assistantships on campus; 2) expanding Harpur College’s undergraduate Liberal Arts to Career Externship (LACE) program to include opportunities for PhD students; 3) guiding PhD students in the design and maintenance of Individual Development Plans; 4) establishing roundtables and mentoring programs with alumni who have non-academic careers; and 5) increasing faculty acceptance of non-academic careers. We also propose to explore several additional and currently less-developed ideas.
