Opportunity Text: 

The 2019 Building Future Faculty (BFF) program will be offered by NC State University on Wednesday, April
3, 2019 - Friday, April 5, 2019. This all-expenses paid workshop is designed for diverse graduate students
and post-doctoral students who are seeking a career as a faculty member.

Workshop topics include information regarding what to expect as a faculty member, a discussion of the
wealth of resources available to faculty for teaching, and expectations of productivity for faculty
engaged in research. During the workshop, participants will spend time with current faculty and department
chairs in their discipline discussing effective strategies to prepare for an academic career, and the
realities of life as a faculty member, as well as receiving personal tips and feedback. This program aims
to increase faculty diversity and inclusion, to create faculty that mirrors the increasingly diversified
student populations.
