I so appreciate this discussion. I’m Mollie Eisenberg, ENG *21, a current postdoc at USC with their new Mellon Humanities and the University of the Future program. I’m working on a white paper recommending to senior administration some interventions in graduate training (and faculty support) in re: public-facing scholarly work as part of thinking through the role of the university in public life. Very grateful to learn about your work.

@Mollie your work sounds great! How can we keep up with the public-facing interventions you're working on? :)

I believe national averages are even higher—Luke Menand cites 9.8 years in English programs nationwide in his The Marketplace of Ideas, which is now some years old.
