Future Faculty Career Exploration Program 

September 27 – 30, 2017 


The Future Faculty Career Exploration Program (FFCEP) is a cornerstone of our faculty recruitment strategy. It is designed to increase the diversity of faculty at Rochester Institute of Technology. This innovative program is key to RIT's strategic plan and its diversity goals, as it attracts scholars nearing the end of their doctoral MFA or post-doc studies, as well as junior faculty, to visit RIT for a prospective look. FFFCEP allows RIT deans and department chairs to engage with invited scholars in discussions about their academic work and career interests. Participants are able to discover RIT's unique teaching and research philosophies. They can converse with administration about current open faculty positions, or ones that may become available in the near future. If selected to participate in the program, individuals are eligible for an all-expenses-paid trip to visit RIT, located in Rochester, New York.
