Come Learn About Becoming a Future Faculty Member on September 26

Posted on 9/19/2016 2:53:27 PM

Graduate students: Have you ever considered a career in higher education, including instructor positions at a community college? If so, please join us to learn more about academia in general and how to prepare to apply for college teaching positions. “Current Issues in Academia and Community College Teaching” will be held on Monday, September 26, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the Allegheny Room.

The Center for Teaching Excellence, in association with the Division of Academic Affairs and the School of Graduate Studies and Research, is pleased to offer a seminar series designed to provide an overview of college teaching for graduate students across all colleges and disciplines.   

Based on initial interest, the goal is to expand the program beyond monthly meetings for a more in-depth student-centered initiative to enhance understanding and competence in the major areas of faculty responsibility: teaching, advising, scholarship, and service.  

RSVPs are appreciated by September 23, 2016. Please click on this link to let us know you are planning to attend.
