Applying to a small college?

A nice piece in the Chronicle of Higher Ed on tailoring your job letters for small liberal arts colleges. The tips here are applicable beyond the home department of the essay's author, and some of them are common sense regardless of the target college, e.g. no typos! However, there are some useful tidbits for customizing your sales pitch to the unique mission and requirements of the small/selective liberal arts college (SLAC).

  1. Thanks so much for this link. I think a lot of the job-applying talk out there is really tailored towards big research schools, and it is great to see tips on applying to smaller schools.
