Wright selected for Preparing the Professoriate Program
Computer Science PhD student, David Wright, has been named one of the 10 doctoral students selected for the Preparing the Professoriate program through a University-wide competition.
Preparing the Professoriate is a program which gives faculty and doctoral students the opportunity to engage in a significant mentoring activity for an academic year. It is a central component of NC State's attempt to enrich and improve the way in which graduate students are trained at this university by providing students with a hands-on teaching opportunity under a distinguished faculty mentor who is recognized for his/her teaching skills.
The program is open to doctoral students who plan careers as research/teaching scholars at colleges and universities.
The program sponsors 7 workshops for participants throughout the academic year illuminating various aspects of college/university teaching. Participation in this program is a requirement for all NC State GAANN Fellows.
