A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:

Faculty Teaching Internship Program

Richland Community College is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and established the Faculty Teaching Internship Program in 2006. The program is designed to place minority and/or other under-represented graduate students working toward a master’s degree in disciplines designated by the College. This program is made available annually to applicants. Students selected are classified as “interns” and transition into full-time tenure-track faculty positions in the discipline for which they were originally hired.

While in the Faculty Teaching Internship Program, students teach at least six credit hours of college-level courses per semester. Interns receive graduate course reimbursement for each semester in the internship. They are provided a faculty mentor, continuous feedback and evaluation, and meet with an internship transition team at least twice a semester.
