Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning

Preparing Future Faculty

PFF studentsThe Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Program, coordinated by the Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, was modeled after the national PFF movement. The program was launched at Auburn University in 2005. The goal is to prepare future faculty to meet the challenges of the 21st century by increasing Auburn University graduate student readiness to assume faculty roles, helping graduate students understand the expectations and functional realities of faculty life, developing
wider institutional and personal networks, and making graduate study even more responsive to disciplinary and professional needs.
