The Future Faculty Career Exploration Program is one of a series of recruitment strategies designed to fuel the future pipeline of faculty at RIT. This innovative program furthers RIT's goal of "Grow Your Own" future faculty by bringing in students, nearing the end of their doctoral studies, for an all-expense-paid trip to Rochester to receive the "RIT Treatment." We also welcome applications from those that have completed their degrees and junior faculty. 

Program Objectives

  • Build the future faculty pipeline by establishing significant meaningful relationships with prospects from underrepresented and underserved populations at RIT.
  • Lay the foundation for opening up future networks with other universities.
  • Strategically prepare for pending human resource needs to cover future curriculum development and course offerings.
  • Proactively seize employment opportunities, where appropriate prospects are found, that can contribute to the University's continuing commitment to cultural diversity.
  • Serve as a bridge to assist in transition from graduate school student to a faculty member.
  • Assist in preparing future faculty for a career in the Institute.

Program Benefits

  • meetings with deans, department heads, and the president of RIT
  • campus and community tours
