Offered jointly by the Graduate Writing Center (formerly Academic Services) and the GSI Teaching & Resource Center, the aim of the Summer Institute for Preparing Future Faculty is to enable graduate students to excel in all aspects of academic life as they pursue an advanced degree at Berkeley and transition from graduate school to future academic careers. The Institute takes place at the end of the Spring semester. Graduate students who are nearing completion of their graduate programs and beginning to prepare for the academic job market are encouraged to apply. For more information or if you have questions about the Summer Institute, please see the Graduate Division’s GSI Teaching and Resource Center website, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (510) 642-4456.
