Dunlevie Honors Colloquium

Honors Carolina students meet on weekday evenings each semester to discuss a broad interdisciplinary topic of their own choosing.

The sessions begin with a social gathering, followed by a presentation from a distinguished faculty scholar who shares ideas, discoveries, and challenges related to the topic at hand. The presentation is followed by small student-led discussion groups.

Spring 2014: Translational Skills: From Academy to Market

How do we take what we have learned and experienced in our university education and put it our advantage as we pursue our career interests in the years to come? This colloquium will combine practical workshops on resumes, cover letters and statements of purpose, interview practices, and etiquette dinners with illuminating talks by distinguished alums who will provide us with the benefit of their experiences from both sides of the job search. They will tell us about their own career pathways as well as what they look for when hiring new colleagues.
