    Pros

    College supports work of VAPs, funding for conference travel, pedagogical support, (almost) same benefits as TT. Great location for young families, good work/life policies.

    Cons

    Can be isolating place to live, especially for young single & queer professionals. Some departments are much better than others at supporting VAPs
