Sarah Carson *20, HOS

Visiting Assistant Professor, Northwestern
GradFUTURES Learning Cohort Participant

Sarah Carson earned a Ph.D. in History from Princeton, and took part in the American Higher Ed GradFUTURES Learning Cohort.

"The American Higher Education series was a great opportunity to develop a cross-disciplinary and multi-stage academic community, in a setting where it was safe and encouraged to talk frankly about the structures of the university and career paths leading from the Ph.D. I benefited from a window into the administration at Princeton and deeply appreciated learning about the different kinds of higher education settings across the US landscape (beyond the R1 and Ivy League) where many Princeton PhDs may eventually find themselves. The small-group seminar setting was fruitful for refreshing conversations that demystified how "the university" works and keyed me into current debates and challenges for its future."
