The IUPUI Preparing Future Faculty and Professionals program builds on the Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) model to include graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in pursuing both academic and non-academic careers. PFF is a national program developed to support graduate students to cultivate the skills needed to become an effective faculty member. This program targets competencies in teaching, research, organizational/professional and service areas by providing scholars to choose from the two tracks:
The PFF track provides participants targeted seminars and hands-on activities related to research, teaching and service.
The PFP track provides career awareness, and management through outcome-based activities for the versatile use of their degrees.
