A little bit of history...

The Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) program was a national initiative that was launched in 1993 by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the Council of Graduate Schools (CGU). The aim of this initiative was to transform the ways in which graduate students prepared for careers as faculty members in institutes of higher education. Since the inception of PFF programs around the nation, this mission has become even more urgent. As higher education landscapes change radically, faculty face new challenges and opportunities both as scholars and educators. PFF programs play a critical role in helping graduate students prepare for productive and balanced faculty lives of ethical and excellent scholarly practice, teaching, and service.
