Please share with your PhD and/or MFA students. Our college has been well represented among previous cohorts. As someone who has had students in the program and as a former organizer of the program, I strongly believe it has value for our students who are planning to go on the academic job market in the next two years.  Let me know if I can be of assistance to you as you reach out to students.

Take care.
