Tomorrow's Professor Today

Tomorrow’s Professor Today (TPT) is designed to facilitate the transition of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from trainee to academic professional, the program focuses on improving preparedness primarily in teaching at the college level, with additional emphasis in professional development and adjustment to a university career. Activities to support this endeavor include participating in a hybrid course design seminar, attending workshops, observing faculty and peers teach, preparing teaching documents, and peer-mentoring fellow participants. 

Participants gain enhanced teaching abilities and credentials, are introduced to many of the responsibilities faced by university faculty and administrators, attain a more comprehensive understanding of how the various components (i.e., research, teaching, service) of their graduate or postgraduate experience relate to one another now and in their future careers, and become better prepared for the challenges they will face in their future careers at a university or college. 

For more information about TPT, including detailed descriptions of each tier and information about when and how to enroll, on the CTE website here.
