Word on the Street[]

Any updates on Southern University?

  • Zoom interview scheduled on 11/7.

Any updates on Utica University? (12/10)

  • First interviews were held 1/23-26, contacted via email
  • First-round Zoom interviews scheduled for weeks of 1/30-2/3 and 2/6-2/10
    • This makes sense since they told me they'd be interviewing for a couple more weeks (because they have one line across two potential areas).
  • Any word on campus visits? (2/27)

Also any updates on Texas State University's Assistant Professor--Children's and Young Adult Literature position? It isn't posted anywhere. (12/10)
