Future Instructor Training Internship and Mentorship Program PDF
Inspire and Engage Through Inclusive Education
To effectively engage community college students in the learning process, future instructors must be inclusive, inter-culturally competent, and able to integrate diversity, equity, and multiculturalism into their curricular content and teaching style.
This program aims to connect existing faculty at NOCCCD to mentor future potential instructors in selected fields for fall 2018. The internship program will be one semester in length and will run from August 1, 2018 through December 15, 2018.
The program will offer an $800.00 stipend for each intern and mentor for the semester and offer workshops on becoming a community college instructor. The goal of this program is to increase the diversity of community college faculty to better serve our diverse student population.
