Alt-Ac Lecture Series on Alternative Academic Careers

Posted in Announcements

What: Alt-Ac I: A Public Panel Discussion with Scott Nelson, Jessica McKelvie Kemp, and Emily Nemens.

When: Friday, April 4 at 10:30 am

Where: 102 Allen Hall

Alt-Ac (ȯlt-’ak) n adj. – Alternative Academic Careers
“We primarily use alt-ac as an umbrella term to refer to full-time non-teaching and non-research positions within higher education. These can be staff or administrative positions, and these positions may (and often do) include teaching and/or research duties, but teaching and research are not the primary focus of the position. There are also comparable alt-ac positions beyond campus; many alt-ac types are found among public historians, librarians, museum curators, independent scholars, professional writers, etc.”
 Brenda Bethman and C. Shaun Longstreet,
“The Alt-Ac Track: Defining Terms”

  • Jessica McKelvie Kemp, Vice President Policy & Advocacy Center for Planning Excellence;

LSU faced Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute (now University of Louisiana at Lafayette) on September 26, a game Coach E.T. McDonald (standing at left in the photograph) called “merely a practice game” against a much smaller team with less ability. LSU cruised to an easy 54-0 victory.
