    Chronicle of Higher Education Mentions Carleton's New Pathways Program

    October 1, 2013

    The Oct. 1 edition of the Chronicle of Higher Education (subscription required) made a note of Carleton's new "Pathways" program in its article entitled "Career Centers Stretch to Fill New Roles." The Chronicle notes that Pathways was started as a result of discussions during the recently-completed strategic planning process, listing  as one of its priorities this goal: "Prepare students more robustly for fulfilling post-graduation lives and careers." The Chronicle writes "Carleton believes in its approach to a liberal-arts education, says President Steven G. Poskanzer, its president. Still, he says, "we are not keeping faith with students and families if they graduate from Carleton and then spend the next three or four years floundering." Pathways is an outcome of that planning to more intentionally shape the College's advising program, has started a new Web site to provide information on popular career fields like health and wellness and arts and communication, and is doing more to tie academics and outside activities together."

    Carleton Receives Gift To Create Will Internship Fund in Social Entrepreneurship

    September 17, 2013

    Thanks to a gift from Eric ’66 and Mimi ’66 Carlson P’97, Carleton College has announced the establishment of the Robert E. Will ’50 Endowed Internship Fund in Social Entrepreneurship. Administered by Carleton’s career center, the fund supports 8-10 domestic or international internships per year at up to $5,000 each for students pursuing social entrepreneurship. The fund honors Bob Will, the Raymond Plank Professor of Incentive Economics, Emeritus. A 1950 Carleton graduate, Will earned his PhD at Yale University and taught at Carleton from 1957-93. He championed the importance of a liberal arts education, and each year the Robert E. Will Economics Prize is awarded to the senior economics major or majors who demonstrate excellent academic achievement and breadth of intellectual interests in the best tradition of a liberal arts education. Professor Will remains a resident of Northfield and is very involved in community activities.
