Consider a Career at a Liberal Arts College

Do you see yourself as a teacher, scholar, and mentor?

If you are preparing for or pursuing a career as a faculty member at a college or university, here's a quick quiz.

  • Do you prefer small group or one-on-one educational experiences?
  • Do you want to teach and mentor students in addition to pursuing scholarly research?
  • Do you enjoy collaborating across departments and institutions?

If your answer is yes, consider a career at a small, residential liberal arts college, such as any of the 14 members of the Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM). You'll find institutions where you can fully engage as an educator and member of a college community, while also pursuing your research interests.
