About FFLC

Mission:  The UAlbany Future Faculty Leadership Council (FFLC) creates successful faculty members by empowering UAlbany graduate students to enter the job market and progress through the tenure process with confidence.

FFLC Description: The FFLC prepares members for successful faculty careers through the following activities:
  1. The orchestration of professionalization activities across departments through the sharing of information and best practices in.
    • Job seeking, interviewing, portfolios, etc., across departments and disciplines
    • Teaching and course design in higher educational settings
    • Scholarly productivity and time management
  2. Encouraging networking and cross-campus communication and collaboration
  3. On-going assessment of student needs
The FFLC takes on both small scale projects in our home departments and larger projects for the whole graduate student community.  Examples of such projects include brown bag lunches to discuss the job market and workshops on dual hiring situations (e.g. two faculty members hired together).
