Preparing Future Faculty is a national program developed to support graduate students to cultivate the skills needed to become an effective faculty member. The IUPUI Preparing Future Faculty and Professionals program builds on the PFF model to include scholars who are interested in pursuing both academic and non-academic careers. This program targets competencies in teaching, research, organizational/professional and service areas by providing scholars to choose from the two tracks.
In order to be awarded with the program certificate, the candidates must
- Apply and be accepted into the program
- Attend the PFFP orientation session
- Attend and participate in specific events/workshops targeting the four competencies (teaching, research, organizational/professional and service) for minimum of 12 hours.
- Complete a capstone essay that provides an opportunity for the scholars to reflect on their experiences throughout the program.
Upon completion, the scholars receive PFFP certification and a digital badge to boast on their professional profiles online.
