The Future Instructors in Training (FIT) Program is a unique opportunity for qualified individuals to explore and develop a career in community college instruction. FIT combines pedagogical training with mentorship and hands-on classroom experience, providing invaluable training through participation in projects and assignments that allow for the practical application of academic knowledge and the development of skills necessary for a career in higher education.

The Future Instructors in Training program begins with a summer “Future Instructors Academy”, and continues with a fall internship, where each participant based on their demonstrated aptitude and career goals, is paired with a mentor from among COC’s dynamic faculty. Following successful completion of the Fall Internship, FIT participants graduate with the preparation and tools necessary to pursue adjunct teaching positions at COC.
