Graduate Faculty Development Program Trainings

The Graduate Division Dean's office, in collaboration with Student Academic Affairs, will be providing the following trainings for faculty of the basic science PhD programs. For more information about faculty training requirements, see the Graduate Program Policies.

The Graduate Faculty Development Program trainings listed below will fulfill those requirements while also providing meaningful and practical guidance to faculty in their roles as mentors, supervisors and advisors to their trainees.

Faculty Participation Tracker

For the sake of transparency and accountability, faculty participation in our training is tracked and made available in our Faculty Participation Tracker. Graduate program directors and administrators use this data to enforce their program-specific policies regarding faculty training. Graduate students and Postdocs are also able to view this data. If you have any questions about our participation tracker, please reach out to Isaac Strong.

Non-GFDP Training Opportunities

We recognize that faculty often participate in trainings outside of the Graduate Faculty Developement Program (GDFP). Scroll to the bottom of this page to see our suggestions. Faculty who do so are encouraged to fill out our Non-GFDP Training Participation Form to provide us details about these outside trainings.

Non-GFDP Training Participation Form

**Please note: it is up to the graduate program directors if non-GFDP trainings will count toward your requirements. The Graduate Division Dean's office will use the information you provide to advise program directors if outside trainings align with the goals of the GFDP.**
