Definition:



The West Valley-Mission Community College District invites applications for our 2020-2021 Faculty Diversity Internship Program.



The Faculty Diversity Internship Program (FDIP) introduces participants to the community college environment and to the rich diversity of students attending the District's two colleges—West Valley College and Mission College. FDIP recruits interns in support of a wide range of community college disciplines (and especially for those disciplines for which there is an anticipated shortage of qualified faculty). FDIP enhances community college efforts toward building a diverse and representative faculty.
