Teaching Transfer Initiative

The Teaching Transfer Initiative is an academic outreach pilot program led by the Office of the Provost and managed by the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. Designed to encourage community college students to explore and transfer to four-year institutions, the program will invest in the community college sector by expanding Princeton’s teaching and advising capacity outward. The program is currently hiring an initial cohort of visiting faculty fellows.

In academic year 2023-24, the Teaching Transfer Initiative will hire recent Ph.D.s with relevant teaching experience and place them as Visiting Faculty Fellows at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) for a one-year (potentially renewable) appointment. These fellows will first receive intensive training in the summer at Princeton, and then begin their assignment at MCCC. 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 MCCC students. With guidance and input from both MCCC and Princeton, the visiting faculty fellows will also design and organize co-curricular programs and advising sessions on the transfer process.

Visit the Princeton University Careers site for more details about these positions and to apply.

See the Transfer Scholars Initiative for more details about a related pilot, designed to bring community college students to Princeton for a summer intensive program.
