The Academic Pathway –  Perspectives Along My Journey

Don Visco.

I started graduate school in January 1995 at UB.  In the 26 years from that time to now, I have had a wide variety of experiences within the vast expanse of the academic landscape.  In this talk, aimed primarily at departmental graduate students though valuable to early career faculty as well, I provide some stories, lessons learned and actions as a result of these experiences.  It is my hope that I can educate those considering the academic career path on opportunities and pitfalls on this rewarding journey.
