H-Pennsylvania is a network for scholars, teachers, archivists, librarians, and others interested in the history and culture of Pennsylvania.

As long time H-Pennsylvania list members can plainly see, we've undergone some changes, and there are more to come! But let's keep the conversation going and the information flowing. We still want all the CFP's, announcements, queries, and all other things Pennsylvanian that we loved on H-Pennsylvania.

Looking for chairs/professors who've recruited students

Hi everyone,

My department is looking for advice on how to better recruit students.  We are looking for a chair or professor who can help us develop better materials, strategies, etc., to attract more students.  We are a combined department (HIS/PSC/Global Studies) if that makes any difference.

The department will pay for services, while I don't think it'll allow whoever gets it to retire in luxury to the south of France it'll still be worth walking to the mailbox for the check. 

So please let me know: hinshaw@lvc.edu.
