Preparing Social Science and Humanities Faculty Program
Ric Weibl, PFF Program Manager

The Preparing Future Faculty Program recently announced the departments and institutions selected to participate in the Preparing Future Social Science and Humanities Faculty Program.

The project addresses the doctoral preparation of future faculty in the social sciences and the humanities. It brings universities--the "producers" --and the colleges--the "consumers"--into partnerships to offer preparation that is more in line with the missions of undergraduate colleges and the characteristics of their students. Doctoral degree-granting departments, partnering with a cluster of similar academic departments in a wide range of institutions, will offer graduate students a laboratory to learn about future faculty responsibilities.

In this highly collaborative project, CGS and AAC&U is coordinating the work of six social science and humanities disciplines. The disciplines are represented by their professional societies: the American Historical Association, the American Political Science Association, the American Psychological Association, American Sociological Association, the National Communication Association, and the National Council of Teachers of English.

Leadership teams from each societies have now selected the departments who Preparing Social Science and Humanities Faculty Program
will receive grants to create over a 2-year period innovative programs based on Preparing Future Faculty concepts.
