The Community College Teaching Partnership program offers Princeton University graduate students a two-semester long experience at local community colleges.

Following a mentored semester, during which Princeton Ph.D. students shadow and learn from a tenured community college faculty member, each Princeton Ph.D. student has the oppportunity to teach a course at a partipating community college. The program helps Princeton graduate students develop as teachers, as they design and deliver courses while learning about the academic environment of a community college.

This professional development opportunity is particularly rich for graduate students because it encourages them to develop effective teaching skills in a highly diverse community college -- skills that have been shown to benefit all students, regardless of their career trajectory. 

A cohort of roughly seven Ph.D. students (who must be enrolled, and must have completed the general examination in their field) are selected to participate in the program eacg tear. Applications will be solicited from across Princeton University by the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School, in concert with the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning.
