Description:
This is an all-expenses paid 3-day workshop for diverse graduate students and post-docs who are preparing for a faculty career.

It is targeted to students who are currently about one year away from beginning a faculty job search. The workshop provides information about what to expect as a faculty member, the kinds of resources available to faculty for teaching, and the type of research productivity that is expected of faculty. During the workshop, participants spend time with faculty and department heads in their discipline discussing how to best prepare for this type of work, what the life of a faculty member is like, and receiving personal tips and feedback. The program aims to increase faculty diversity and inclusion.

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

- "All of these sessions were incredibly informative and have brought a number of concerns to my attention that I would not have been mindful of without running into issues first."

- "The department visit was a great platform to ask questions that might not be appropriate in an interview."

- "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."
