Published on: February 1, 2022

JAMESTOWN, N.C. (Feb. 1, 2022) Guilford Technical Community College has created a new program to help prepare potential instructors to take the next step in their educational career.

GTCC's Faculty Diversity Internship Program, Inclusion for Impact, will provide faculty interns 48 hours of intensive training that focuses on teaching, learning, diversity, equity, and inclusion at the college level. It is the only program of its kind on the East Coast.

Once the 48 hours of training is complete, participants transition to a part-time paid teaching schedule at GTCC with close mentoring and support from veteran faculty members who provide immediate feedback.

"Our staff and faculty have developed a unique and innovative program," said Anthony Clarke, Ph.D., president of GTCC. "We are proud of their work and are looking forward to seeing how this program will help increase a diverse and inclusive pool of potential college-level instructors."

The Inclusion for Impact Program is open to early career professionals with 10 years or less of experience, a master’s degree, or 18 graduate hours in their subject area.

Participants are compensated for the courses with additional stipends for work related to the program.

Other benefits for interns include:

  • Full immersion in GTCC faculty activities
  • Training on teaching and learning, diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Training in classroom management
  • Engagement in a capstone hiring simulation featuring a mini-teach and formal interview with immediate feedback
