Congratulations to Mechanical Engineering Student Malena Agyemang for receiving an invitation to ACTIVE, the CU Engineering Faculty Development and Leadership Intensive, in September at Colorado University.
More about ACTIVE:
ACTIVE, the CU Engineering Faculty Development and Leadership Intensive, is an expense-paid, three-day program open to domestic doctoral students and new post-docs whose identity community/ies have been minoritized in STEM and who are interested in pursuing engineering faculty careers. Applicants should be graduate engineering scholars near the end of their academic training or just starting post-doctoral work with at least one year remaining before entering the academic job market. Preference will be given to individuals whose research areas match those of the CU Boulder College of Engineering and Applied Science.
This program provides PhD candidates and new post-doc participants insight into the faculty selection and hiring processes at an R1 institution to demystify the interviewing experience. ACTIVE program participants will learn about hiring committee practices and will learn how to package their experiences and unique characteristics for success in a faculty search. In addition, participants will explore the growing academic community here at the University of Colorado Boulder and hear about upcoming employment opportunities. CU Engineering comprises 18 degree programs, six academic departments, and six interdisciplinary research themes.
CU Engineering is a top research university dedicated to excellent research, teaching, and learning. Our pedagogy is rooted in active learning, which uses research-based methods to bring theory to life in any classroom or teaching setting.
