Last semester, I mentioned how I’d been exploring the implications and applications of my education to the real world through community-based learning and engaged pedagogy. Moving forward, my goals are to expand my thinking about university teaching and research on one hand, and to think about non-tenure jobs both within and without a university setting on the other. Alt-ac in its truest sense, if you will: exploring alternatives to the traditional tenure-track, whether they be in an academic setting or not. Another prong of this self-crafted program of exploration has been interning for a non-profit.
