Behind the CV: Stories from Faculty

Do professors struggle with imposter syndrome?

Did they face the same challenges as students today?

 

Behind the CV: Stories from Faculty (a “Growing Up in Science” Event) is an event series about becoming and being a scientist. Faculty share their stories with a focus on the unspoken challenges of a life in academia. This event is open to undergrads, grad students, postdocs, and others.

Please join us for this series once a month, and (if you missed the last one) check out our videos below!
