Visiting Faculty Fellow opportunities

VFFs receive intensive training in the summer at Princeton, and then begin their assignment(s) at the community college(s). Each fellow will teach typical course offerings for the community college as well as one Princeton-accredited course in the spring – possibly through a co-teaching model with community college faculty appointed as Princeton adjunct lecturers--for select community college students. With guidance and input from both the community college and Princeton, the visiting faculty fellows will also design and organize co-curricular programs and advising sessions on the transfer process. We expect to hire a new cohort of VFFs for the 2024-2025 academic year. 


Community College Teaching Fellowships

The Princeton / Community College Teaching Partnership program enables currrent Princeton grdaute students to teach courses at Mercer County Community College, Rowan College South Jersey, Camden County College, or Middlesex College. The Fellowship provides a valuable, mentored experience by a tenured community college faculty member, and helps you develop as a teacher, providing an opportunity to design and teach a course. This professional development opportunity is particularly rich for graduate students because it encourages you to develop effective teaching skills in a highly diverse community college. These skills have been proven to benefit all students, regardless of their career trajectory.
