now open

Dear ADVANCE Community,
Please encourage your graduate students to apply for this program and also
provide this information to your colleagues and networks.
Marcia Gumpertz


I hope this message finds you in good spirits. As someone who connects with
graduate students and post-doctoral students, I would like to draw your
attention to a unique opportunity to engage future faculty members in an
enriching, preparatory experience.

The 2016 Building Future Faculty (BFF) program will be offered by NC State
University on *Wednesday, March 30, 2016 - Saturday, April 2, 2016*. This
all-expenses paid workshop is designed for diverse graduate students and
post-doctoral students who are seeking 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, to create faculty that mirrors
the increasingly diversified student populations,

Past participants had the following things to say about the program:

"The BFF program provided me with a set of new ideas that I will use as a
framework for preparing and positioning myself to be a competitive faculty
"This experience has certainly prepared me for the job market as a future
faculty member. The knowledge I have gained and the contacts that I have
acquired have been invaluable. I would recommend this program to anyone
pursuing a career in academia."
"I believe this program is not only benefiting the participants, but the
higher education community as a whole. There are experiences I have had in
this program that will remain with me throughout my career."
