It is with great excitement we announce that the WVMCCD Faculty Diversity Internship Program (FDIP) is accepting applications for the Spring 2023 semester! The West Valley Mission Community College District's FDIP aims to connect equity-minded administrators, faculty, and staff to interns who aspire to become culturally competent instructors at a California Community College. The FDIP also has a specialized track for non-instructional faculty such as academic counselors.
This internship program is one semester in length. The program will offer a $2,000 stipend for each intern for the semester. Interns will shadow experienced faculty and attend informational workshops on key aspects of implementing equity-minded principals in a community college setting. The goal of the program is to increase the diversity of our community college faculty to better serve our student population. All applicants must meet the minimum qualifications for teaching in their desired field.
Qualified applicants for this program should have a master's degree or higher in a subject they would like to teach at a community college level.
