Many studies suggest that current graduate students in the cultural disciplines aspire to career and life pathways outside of those offered by faculty positions in research-intensive universities.  How can graduate faculty, many of whom are familiar only with those types of positions, best advise these students? 

Through a series of activities, this workshop offers a modest contribution to addressing this question by focusing on how we can stop giving graduate students bad advice.  The goal of the workshop is to clear a space where we can begin to build a more responsive and flexible advising culture, one that supports the diverse aspirations of graduate students today.
