The CFE offers graduate students a variety of opportunities to prepare for their careers as faculty. Interested in writing a teaching Statement? Consider applying for the Future Faculty Fellowship Program. Are you interested in faculty development? The CFE and the Graduate School offer a program for graduate students to learn from CFE staff about how to support faculty, teachers, researchers, leaders, and mentors.

Graduate Student Fellowship (GSF) Program

The CFE and the Graduate School invite applications to the Graduate Student Fellowship program. The joint Graduate School and CFE program provides graduate students with a unique opportunity to learn about faculty development.

Graduate Student Workshops

The CFE offers four workshops each semester for graduate students.

New Teaching Assistant Orientation

New Teaching Assistants (TAs) are invited to take an online course designed to prepare them for their dual role as a teacher and a student.

Future Faculty Fellowship Program (FFFP)

At the conclusion of the 2017-2018 academic year, the Future Faculty Fellowship Program (FFFP) will temporarily cease accepting new applications. Graduate students in search of a comparable experience may want to consider the CIRTL @ UNC Chapel Hill curriculum. The FFFP was a semester-long program that introduced graduate students to evidence-based teaching practices, helped them understand the roles and responsibilities of faculty members at different types of institutions of higher education, and helped them reflect on their professional goals.

Graduate Student Office Hours

Each week, Donna W. Bailey offers office hours to discuss anything related to teaching and learning.  These are drop-in times are available to help graduate students, although it is a good idea to make an appointment.
Mondays 12 noon – 2 pm
Wednesdays 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Friday 11 am – 1 pm
Other times can be arranged if these standard times do not work for you. Virtual interaction via Skype is also available. Most often, graduate students have questions about classes they are teaching or about their job search activities. If you are not sure about an area of interest or need, plan to drop by. If I do not know the answer, I can usually find it.
