A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:
The Preparing Future Faculty Program at VCU offers a series of short courses and professional development opportunities for graduate students interested in pursuing careers in higher education.
The series is modeled on the national Preparing Future Faculty Program created by the Association of American Colleges and Universities. It introduces graduate students to the roles and responsibilities of higher education and addresses teaching and learning issues in the college classroom.
