Brookdale/Princeton Community College Teaching Partnership (B/P CCTP) Program Information

The Graduate School and the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning have partnered with Brookdale Community College in an effort to provide Princeton graduate students with more opportunities to teach.  Through this pilot program, graduate students will gain the opportunity to have a paid, mentored experience as a community college faculty member, design and deliver their own courses in their academic fields, and broaden their knowledge of teaching and learning in higher education.

Program Details

Post generals Princeton graduate students are invited to apply for the 2016-17 academic year.

Semester 1: Fall 2016

Graduate students will participate in a bi-monthly cohort seminar designed to introduce them to key topics in higher education (including online learning, assessment, student life, financial aid, etc). They will also shadow their mentor teachers and draft their syllabi with feedback from their mentors.

Semester 2: Spring 2017

Graduate students will teach their own courses at Brookdale, and the mentors will observe at least one session and write a letter which might be used in a future academic job search.

During the teaching semester, Brookdale will pay $2175 for a three-credit course. Over the course of the year, Princeton will also pay successful applicants $1000 as a stipend and to assist with travel costs.

Instructions for applying to B/P CCTP

The deadline for applications is May 6, 2016. To apply, please submit a teaching-focused cover letter and CV.

Applications will be reviewed by academic departments at Brookdale Community College and appointments will be made in late spring, in light of Brookdale’s staffing needs.
