Goals and Benefits of the Program

The goals of the Faculty Fellowship Program are to:

  • Diversify the pool of qualified minority faculty

  • Promote MCC as an accessible and desirable environment within which members of minority groups can establish and maintain careers
  • Provide diverse role models for the benefit of MCC students
  • Enhance the ethnic, racial and intellectual diversity that the college seeks to promote

The benefits of the Faculty Fellowship Program include:

  • Exposure to curriculum that includes best practices in teaching and learning -on-ground, hybrid and online
  • Opportunities for job-shadowing and co-teaching
  • The pairing of Fellows with experienced MCC faculty mentors.
  • Participation in professional development opportunities occurring during the semester
  • Consideration, in the form of an interview, for available adjunct faculty positions in the Faculty Fellow’s discipline.
