And here's some words from Kath on why you should go if you have any inkling that graduate education might be in your future, and why you should help spread the word:
Idealist.org, an organization which is near and dear to my heart, is having one of its AMAZING free Grad Fairs in Providence next week. Representatives from 70 different grad school programs that some how are connected to doing good will convene in Providence on Sept. 20 to talk with anyone who is interested about their programs. I've been to these events a few times and it is a really interesting mix of education, policy, advocacy, research, etc. and a wide range of content areas. It is a great way for folks who are not even sure about grad school, but are doing some soul searching about career paths and next steps. It is really interesting to walk around a room with so many different options and think about what feels resonant.
Here are the particulars:
Idealist.org Grad Fair
Brown University, Andrews Dining Hall
Brown Street and Cushing Streets, Providence

Thanks for the heads-up, Kath!
