Event Name: Los Rios CCD: Faculty Diversity Internship Program (FDIP)
Event Description: Position Summary

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

Through faculty training and classroom internship, the LRCCD Faculty Diversity Internship Program (FDIP) is instrumental in developing a talented and dynamic pool of community college instructors who mirror the diversity of our student population which encompasses people with different cultural, racial, ethnic, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, academic preparation, learning style, and socioeconomic backgrounds.



During the Fall semester, FDIP interns are required to participate in six (6) Saturday workshops emphasizing community college teaching. These workshops will prepare the FDIP interns for the internship. The Saturday workshops will be conducted via Zoom. The Fall semester internship may be online, in-person, or a combination of both modalities. Interns will consult with mentors to determine the intern’s schedule.



The FDIP is committed to providing opportunities for faculty interns to learn and practice teaching strategies appropriate for diverse community college students as a means of recruiting qualified faculty that mirror our student population and are committed to a diversity of perspectives. Our current student demographic profile is as follows: African American (8.2%); Asian (14.9%); Filipino (3%); Hispanic/Latino (30.9%); Multi-Race (6.8%); Native American (0.5%); Pacific Islander (1%); White (31.9%); Other Non-White (0.2%); Other/unknown (2.6%).



PROGRAM STRUCTURE:

Successful participants commit to a one-semester training and internship program in the Fall.



Fall: LRCCD provides approximately 40 hours of community college faculty training (at no cost to the intern). Fall training topics include an overview of the California Community College (CCC) system and its students and faculty, preparing for a class, assessing student learning, effective classroom strategies, and working with diverse learning styles.



The FDIP provides hands-on experience in an educational setting with a faculty mentor for one semester. The internship will take place in the Fall semester while interns attend the Saturday training sessions.

The criteria used in selecting candidates for interview will include:

1. subject matter competence in chosen discipline;

All qualified candidates will be invited for an interview.

Discipline and Minimum Qualifications

A statewide disciplines list defines the masters degree that is reasonably related to the teaching assignment or academic subject matter area. For those disciplines for which a master’s degree is required as a precondition for consideration, participants must show evidence of a master’s degree or that a master’s degree will be obtained by the end of Fall 2024 semester. Review the comprehensive list of all of the disciplines in the “Minimum Qualifications for Faculty and Administrators in California Community Colleges” maintained by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office. The list identifies the specific degree and professional experience requirements for each discipline. The list can be found here: Minimum Qualifications Handbook (cccco.edu).



2. You should also confirm that your discipline is taught by one of the four Los Rios colleges by reviewing the course offerings at each college. You can find that information online here: Programs and Majors | Los Rios Community College District.
