Preparing Future Faculty

Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) is an initiative that seeks to prepare graduate students for their role in the professoriate.  In addition to the PFF programming offered by academic departments, graduate students can attend all CTE sponsored faculty workshops as they begin to think about questions related to finding an academic job, promotion, and tenure.  CTE staff members are available to consult with graduate students.

Certificate of University Teaching

The Center for Teaching Excellence offers the Graduate Student Certificate of University Teaching, which provides an excellent opportunity for graduate students to document their college teaching in preparation for faculty careers.

Both the Certificate of University Teaching and the Advanced Certificate of University Teaching are non-credit programs designed to help graduate student teaching assistants grow as teacher-scholars.
