"Jobs and what you think about them"

Joan talks with Ms.Yancey about her career in Academia. Kathy talks about the impact of professors she had in her college years and how they influenced her decision to pursue a career in academia. They discuss the differences in academic careers one can pursue, often a function of working at a ‘teaching-centric’ vs a ‘research-centric’ institution. Kathy shares her insights into the personal discipline required to fulfill the writing/publishing expectations of the role; and the different relationships a professor often develops with Graduate vs Undergraduate students. This is a candid and insightful conversation about a profession, and in many respects a lifestyle, that few outside of academia understand.
