Past Events

In Fall 2022, Dr. Long hosted three “Hidden Curriculum” dinners with UVA undergraduate and graduate students. The objective was to “pull back the curtain” and give students information about academic careers that are generally not covered in any specific courses. Below are a few photos from and information about these events.

Join Professor Long to pull back the curtain on the “hidden curriculum” of academia while enjoying food from a local eatery.
