External Faculty Development

We welcome suggestions from the community about faculty development programs that are open to Montclair faculty.  Please send in your suggestions to Emily Isaacs.

  • Elevate at the Rutgers Center for MSIs: The ELEVATE program supports the ongoing development of early-career MSI faculty.  ELEVATE brings together early-career faculty at MSIs to provide support, training, and an opportunity to create a close-knit network of peers. Three-day program help during early summer. Applications are typically due in early to mid-February. For questions or support, please contact the program or OFE.
    • 2024 Program Deadline is February 11, 2024
    • Please email Emily Isaacs if you choose to apply.
  • Civic Engagement & Voting Rights Teacher Scholars Program
    • Support democracy in the higher ed classroom by creating open education materials! The Civic Engagement and Voting Rights Teacher Scholars Program – housed in the Clemson University Humanities Hub and sponsored by a grant from The Mellon Foundation – provides a compensated cohort-based opportunity (June 2024-May 2025) for faculty to create educational materials to infuse civic and voter education into humanities or humanities-allied courses.
    • Applications requested no later than February 15, 2024.
    • Montclair State University faculty at any rank are encouraged to apply. As members of a minority-serving institution, your expertise and insight is especially valued.
    • Fellowships come with a stipend and support for all travel costs for the 2-day Summer Institute at Clemson, June 4-5, 2024. The in-person institute will be followed by a year-long Faculty Learning Community (FLC) that will meet virtually.
    • Please email Emily Isaacs if you choose to apply.
  • ASPIRE Alliance Summit: The National Alliance for Inclusive & Diverse Stem Faculty. The NSF INCLUDES Aspire Alliance works towards increasing the diversity of STEM faculty across the nation. The Alliance engages a growing network of partners to support systemic change in the STEM higher education system. In addition to hosting conferences, ASPIRE offers leadership and other opportunities for faculty.
    • Program appears to be on hold.
    • The 2023 NSF Eddie Bernice Johnson INCLUDES Aspire Alliance Summit focused on Systemic Change for an Inclusive and Diverse Faculty, was held in July 2023.  With a list of speakers that includes Montclair’s own Roman Liera (Department of Educational Leadership), this conference is typically offered every year.
