Committee: Academic Career Opportunities and Placement

Committee Charge

The committee's responsibility embraces all activities of the association relating to the enhancement of academic career opportunities for philosophers, and placement. It works to facilitate the entry of philosophers into appropriate careers in teaching, research, and other work; it informs the board of current employment prospects and opportunities for philosophers; and it supervises employment services offered by the association to its members.

The chairs of the committee on non-academic careers and the committee on philosophy in two-year colleges serve in an ex officio capacity on this committee. One member of this committee serves as a liaison to the committee on philosophy in two-year colleges.
