Visiting Lecturer Diversity Fellowship Program, Community College of Philadelphia

Posted on May 5, 2020

Community College of Philadelphia is offering Visiting Lecturer Diversity Fellowship Opportunities for Biology, Nursing, Early Childhood Education, Accounting, and Marketing degree holders. We offer viable career planning in higher education, intentional mentoring, and a teaching component.

The Visiting Lecturer Diversity Fellowship is a paid academic-year full-time fellowship which offers a unique opportunity for individuals from historically underrepresented groups to gain valuable teaching experience, benefit from intentional mentorship, and raise their college profile. The program’s primary objective is to increase diversity within academic departments at the College, consistent with the mission, goals, and core values of Community College of Philadelphia by helping to close the opportunity gap for faculty from underrepresented groups. The DFP for 2020-2021 will begin in Fall 2020 in five areas, Biology, Nursing, Accounting, Marketing and Early Childhood Education.

Our mission is to prepare and support the next generation of visionary educators from underrepresented backgrounds to begin a long-time career and leadership trajectory in higher education.

We provide experienced adjuncts, new-to-the profession, and recent graduate students with long-term support to secure a position as a college professor, and eventually move into faculty leadership roles.

The deadline for all applications is Monday, May 11, 2020.
