Preparing Future Faculty

With the objective of networking and learning from each other, the Preparing Future Faculty workshop series provides an opportunity to learn more about the transition from graduate student to faculty member, and to exchange ideas and experiences with fellow graduate students across disciplines. All graduate students are invited to explore topics such as: Helping your students succeed at CSUSM, Innovative teaching and student engagement, Building and writing your CV, and What’s next? Building your academic career. This community will meet once per month on a Thursday, with lunch provided.
