Preparing Future Faculty Workshop May 9-10 [deadline April 20]

April 11, 2012

[here’s a workshop deadline that might be useful to some of you, esp. the Preparing Future Faculty. If you are thinking of working at the higher ed’ level, this workshop might be really helpful. I took a workshop like this at Virginia Tech BEFORE I even started on my master’s, so I would have a sense for what working life would be like]

 

The deadlines are approaching to enroll in the STEM Entrepreneurship Essentials and the Preparing Future Faculty programs. Both programs now have a deadline of April 20.

STEM Entrepreneurship Essentials: June 4-6, 2012. This 3-day workshop will help STEM doctoral students and postdocs learn the basics of management, entrepreneurship, and leadership skills for developing an idea for industry or start-up companies.
