Join our faculty-led Personal Transformation pilot program, launching in Spring 2024! Empowering educators for personal, professional, and creative growth, we invite faculty to embark on a shared journey toward development and regeneration. In order to contribute to a vibrant and robust academic community, this Personal Transformation pilot program will focus on addressing core needs and fostering resilience, diversity, and well-being within Pratt Institute.
The CTL Faculty Fellowship is a year-long program for selected faculty to work on their research projects that advance department-specific and/or cross-disciplinary strategic goals.
We hope you’ll join us to learn from and connect with the Fellows, as well as congratulate them on their accomplishments!
What does mentoring look like at Pratt? In what ways do faculty and students already make themselves available in a mentoring role? How can Pratt facilitate a mentor exchange in a non-hierarchical manner to bridge generations and varying levels of teaching and learning experiences? How can mentoring exchanges be developed and sustained as peer-to-peer between faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students?
