Academic Ladder is for graduate students, professors, and post docs. This includes ABD graduate students, as well as new graduate students wishing to avoid the many pitfalls that grad school can provide. It includes professors who would like tenure and those considering retirement. It includes those struggling with their career or those who are looking for a fresh outlook to keep up their productive, creative abilities. Anyone studying or working in a non-staff academic setting in higher education will benefit from visiting this site and signing up for my newsletter.

Here’s a quick overview of the highlights of this website…

Academia can be a cold and lonely place. Or to be less dramatic, it can be difficult at times. This site provides access to information, reminders, discussions, assessments, forums and other forms of entertainment/education.

In order for this site to work best for you, I suggest that you sign up for my newsletter, in the upper left hand box on each of the web pages.

Check out my blog, and please write in your comments.  I believe that interacting with others is the number one way to increase your productivity. Isolation can be a creativity killer.

Take the self assessments. Many people take them periodically to monitor their progress.

Write me directly at Gina@AcademicLadder.com to let me know what you would like to see on this site, or to offer congratulations or criticism (gentle preferred.)
