The Plus One Network assists educational institutions in supporting their employees by connecting spouses/partners to professional and personal opportunities.
It is common for a college or university to offer a position to one member of a couple but not have a job available for the other member. The Plus One Network—formerly the Academic Career Network—provides spouses/partners with links to job postings at colleges, universities, and independent schools in New England and New York, plus free access to networking events, workshops, and speakers; relocation tools; and opportunities to connect with other dual-career couples.
The Plus One Network is a program of the Five College Consortium, run in partnership with Williams College.
Membership is open to colleges, universities, and independent schools in New England and NY. Educational institutions purchase a Plus One Network membership and make the Network available at no cost to spouses/partners of the school’s faculty and staff.
