Exploring Teaching Careers at Teaching Intensive Universities with CIRTL Alumni

April 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Nationally, more undergraduates are educated at community colleges, liberal arts colleges, and specialized BS and MS universities than at research universities. These faculty become leaders at their institutions, usually serve as advisers as well, and may engage in some research. Learn about what it’s like to teaching at a teaching-intensive university and ask questions of CIRTL alumni who are teaching at these institutions in this online panel event. Panelists will talk about how much teaching they do, opportunities for leadership and advancement, and more. This is the second event in our four-part series “Exploring Career Paths with CIRTL Alumni.”


Sam Krerowicz, Lecturer, Chemistry, Indiana University East
Kelly Gorres, Associate Professor, Chemistry, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse
Bethany Sump, Instructor of Biology, Drury University
