Faculty Diversity Internship Program

The Faculty Diversity Internship Program was established at CCSF in 1990 in response to a recognized need for our campuses to better represent California’s increasing diversity. The purpose of the program is to identify and assist members of underrepresented groups who are interested in a career as CCSF faculty.

Interns are afforded the opportunity to learn and practice teaching and interaction techniques appropriate for community college students, which hopefully will make them more competitive when applying for regular community college faculty positions.

Successful interns will be mentored by a CCSF faculty member for up to two semesters. Interns will shadow their faculty mentor in the instruction of one course per semester, working towards more active collaboration in teaching as the internship progresses. Interns will be awarded an $1,800 stipend for each semester of their participation in the program.
