Teaching Undergraduates:Different Pathways toWorking with Students 

Student-run seminar series 

Host: Rob Crovak 

Bettie Davis

Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Saint Vincent College

Matthew Fisher

Professor of Chemistry, Saint Vincent College

While the two of us have spent several decades teaching undergraduates at various institutions of higher education, we followed very different pathways to get to our final positions. Our experiences included working as academic staff, an adjunct instructor, and a tenure-track/tenured faculty position. One of us has taught entirely at small four year undergraduate colleges, the other has taught at large universities and community colleges as well as small undergraduate institutions. We’ll share our experiences over the past 30 years as well as some things to keep in mind for individuals interested in pursuing a teaching career after graduate school.
