The annual FFCEP is an all-expense-paid opportunity for minority Ph.D. and MFA students or individuals involved in a Post Doctoral assignment to visit Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and Rochester, NY for a weekend. We also welcome applications from junior faculty and those who have completed their degree. This program enables diverse prospects interested in teaching to explore potential faculty career choices through exploratory interviews; formal presentations; meetings with deans, department heads, and RIT president; along with campus and community tours. The Future Faculty Program allows RIT deans to engage prospects in discussions about their academic work and career interests. It allows faculty to share RIT’s teaching and research agenda and to dialog on current open faculty positions or those that may be available in the near future.
