The College Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and College Office of Graduate Affairs invites you to attend our panel "Hybrid Careers: Using Your Advanced Degree In and Outside of the Academy."

The goal of this panel is for you to learn about opportunities and strategies to multitask your degree.

This workshop features scholars who have "hybrid" careers that space the academy and at least one other professional industry. We invite you to engage with these influencers who bring commercial, creative and corporate expertise to their academic leadership, research, teaching and service to KU.

Meet our panelists:

Dr. Nicole Hodges Persey, CLAS Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Associate Professor of Theatre and Artistic Director of KC Melting Pot Theatre

Dr. DeAngela Burns-Wallace, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies, University of Kansas

Dr. Joey Orr, Research Curator, Spencer Museum of Art
