Rochester Institute of Technology’s Future Faculty Career Exploration Program (FFCEP)

The Rochester Institute of Technology’s Future Faculty Career Exploration Program (FFCEP) is currently accepting applications for the class of 2019. This program is design for historically underrepresented minority scholars to explore potential faculty careers. Participants will get to network with faculty, chairs, deans, and administration; hold a job talk presentation on their research; learn more about the culture and values of the institution straight from our diverse faculty and students; and so much more. 

I encourage you to you to share this announcement with your program’s current students (PhD/MFA), alumni, postdoc scholars and fellows, and any others whom might be interested in exploring a career at RIT.  I have attached a flyer with additional details for you to share.  This is a competitive application process.  Applications are due on May 15th.  Learn more at: http://bit.ly/2Uivxy3

Please let me know if you have any questions on the program or RIT.  I appreciate you helping to us reach potential applicants.
