The Princeton / Community College Teaching Program is a collaboration between the McGraw Center for Teaching & Learning and the Graduate School. This unique program enables you 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. Learning Objectives The Fellowship is spread across two semesters: typically across the Spring and Fall of the same calendar year. During the mentored semester (typically conducted in the Spring Semester), you will: Shadow and learn from a tenured community college faculty member. Sit in on lectures and classes and attend faculty meetings. Get a behind-the-scenes view of the life of a professor at a community college. In many cases, guest lecture or present during this mentored semester. Spend time learning about the student populations in community colleges, as well as the range of resources that are available to them. This information and experience is put to use in the second semester of the program (typically in the Fall) when you have the opportunity to teach a course as the sole instructor of record at a community college. Application Process & Stipend Applications are solicited each fall from across Princeton University by the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, in concert with the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. A cohort of Ph.D. students (who must be enrolled, and must have completed the general examination in their field before the teaching semester) are selected to participate each year. International graduate students must contact the Davis International Center to obtain work authorization prior to beginning their teaching. The Community College Teaching Fellowship comes with a stipend for the Spring Semester. Fellows are paid by the community college for the course they teach in the Fall Semester. Questions?
