Five College Consortium

updated June 23, 2016

The Academic Career Network (ACN) exists to help campuses accommodate dual career couples. It is common for colleges and universities to offer positions to one member of a couple but not have a job available for the other member. ACN provides couples with easy access to job postings at colleges and universities in New England and upstate New York. In addition, representatives in the offices of human resources and the chief academic officer of member campuses belong to a listserv on which they share resumes of job-seeking partners and spouses.

ACN is administered through and based at Five Colleges, Incorporated in Amherst, Massachusetts. For information about ACN, view the ACN Contact page.

On this site, Five Colleges, Incorporated also posts resumes of spouses and partners of employees of the five institutions seeking academic and/or administrative positions in higher education in the links "Academic Areas" and "Administrative Areas," respectively.  Viewing access is currently restricted to chief academic officers, chief financial officers, and human resource directors at each of the campuses.
