The 2019 Building Future Faculty (BFF) program will be offered by NC State University on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 – Friday, April 5, 2019. This all-expenses-paid workshop is designed for diverse graduate students and post-doctoral students who are preparing for a career as a faculty member.
Workshop topics include information regarding what to expect as a faculty member, a discussion of the wealth of resources available to faculty for teaching, and expectations of productivity for faculty engaged in research. During the workshop, participants will spend time with current faculty and department chairs in their discipline discussing effective strategies to prepare for an academic career, and the realities of life as a faculty member, as well as receiving personal tips and feedback. This program aims to increase faculty diversity and inclusion and to create a faculty that mirrors the increasingly diversified student population.
