General Discussion

2/15/2021 - General Comment - Does anyone feel like these positions are moving at super slow speed.... and other disciplines are moving faster

True! I wonder why. Most of them have start dates in August, 2021. When will they finalize candidates at this rate?

3/4/2021 - Can we change the name of the page to include "urban planning and urban studies" ? The page won't allow regular users to change it and since there isn't a separate page for urban planning for 2020-21 and I see many relevant postings here, I thought it might help.


The SUNY positions are particularly confusing....

Thank you. But the page header still shows "Geography/Geospatial" and the main page listing shows "Geography/geospatial/GIS." Would it be possible to edit them too?

Hmm, I can not figure out how to change the headers
