Academic Career Network

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.

ACN is administered through and based at Five Colleges, Incorporated in Amherst, Massachusetts. Find out more about ACN.

Five Colleges, Incorporated periodically sends emails to chief academic officers, chief financial officers, and human resource directors at each of the ACN campuses. These messages include the CVs/resumes of spouses/partners seeking positions in higher education. In addition, members can use the ACN Google Group to share CVs/resumes of job-seeking partners and spouses.
