FDIP Program Info. & How To Apply

Program Information

The College:

City College of San Francisco (CCSF) is a public, two-year community college in
San Francisco, California. Since its founding in 1935, City College has evolved into
a multicultural, multi-campus community college that is one of the largest in the
country. CCSF offers courses in more than 50 academic programs and over 100
occupational disciplines.

The 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.

The Internship:

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.


To qualify, one must:
•not have any previous community college faculty experiences (excludes teaching assistantships and other internships)
• must have completed at least 50% of a Master's Degree program OR hold a Associate’s degree plus three years of professional experience in the field for vocational programs.
