We are currently in the process of accepting applications for the Future Faculty Career Exploration Program (FFCEP) class of 2016. Please share the following information with colleagues,organizations and scholars whom you know may be interested in this unique opportunity.
Program Description The FFCEP is a cornerstone of our office's recruitment strategy. It is designed to increase the diversity of faculty at Rochester Institute of Technology. This innovative program is key to RIT's diversity goals, as it attracts scholars nearing the end of their doctoral or MFA studies, as well as post-docs and junior faculty, to visit RIT for a prospective look.
FFCEP allows RIT deans and department chairs to engage with invited scholars in discussions about their academic work and career interests. Participants are able to discover RIT's unique teaching and research philosophies. They can converse with administration about current open faculty positions, or ones that may become available in the near future. If selected to participate in the program, individuals are eligible for an all-expenses-paid trip to visit RIT, located in Rochester, New York.
Eligibility Individuals who meet the following criteria are eligible to apply:
-- Able to contribute in meaningful ways to the university’s continuing commitment to cultural diversity, pluralism, and individual differences. We are primarily interested in applicants of African American, Latin American, American Indian, or Alaskan Native descent, and others who are underrepresented and under-served in teaching professions at RIT.
-- Within one year of receiving, or already received, a Ph.D. or MFA degree, Post-Doctoral assignment or a junior level faculty.
