Great job opportunity
Speaking of linking foundations to meaningful larger questions and issues, I just saw this job posting at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee that links educational foundations with community engagement. Since Aaron and Raji (both bloggers on this site) are there and may feel uncomfortable saying it due to conflict of interest, I will say that their department looks like exactly the kind of place where foundations is flourishing and relevant. Their department chair, Ian Harris, wrote a very nice article that positions foundations as deeply linked to community education. And finally, speaking of jobs, there is a very interesting trend of using a wiki to track candidates’ job interviews, visits, rejections, etc. I noticed numerous foundation-related jobs last year on it. The main academic page for all the disciplines is here.
