Preparing Future Faculty: Contributions to the Job Search Process and Life as a Junior Faculty Member
Lutz, Rafer S.; Ransdell, Lynda
Quest, v55 n1 p62-71 Feb 2003
Life in the academy is a complex and difficult journey. Future faculty must learn how to adapt and grow because the landscape of their career and higher education will constantly change. We are honored that Dr. Dan Landers asked us to contribute our thoughts regarding future faculty preparation and the Arizona State University (ASU) Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) program, in particular. In this respect, Rafer Lutz describes the impact that PFF had upon his recent job search and acclimatization to a new university. Lynda Ransdell details the ways PFF has helped her life as a junior faculty member. Important lessons include seeking true colleagues, the importance of teaching, seeking out multiple mentors, and full participation in the faculty experience.
