Previous Events in this Series

Workshop on Community College Faculty Careers

This Fall 2022, UTA will host a community college career workshop for STEM graduate students. Participants will learn about faculty careers in community colleges, focusing on STEM disciplines. Faculty from Tarrant County College will discuss their experiences, including the teaching and other work expected, the nature of the student population, and the rewards of the career. Participants will have an opportunity to sign up for a classroom observation visit at Tarrant County College during the fall semester, to learn more directly about the teaching experience. Those who complete a classroom visit will be eligible to apply for an Aspire Teaching Fellowship, to support a practicum experience teaching at Tarrant County College. It is intended that the visit and teaching practicum experiences will be conducted in person. This workshop is sponsored by the Aspire Alliance, an NSF-funded INCLUDES Program alliance in which UTA is a member. Presenters will be Dr. Jim Grover (UTA) and Dr. Jean Maines (TCC). Students may register to attend this workshop either in person or online.
