College of Science and Mathematics workshop helps STEM faculty members

The College of Science and Mathematics at Fresno State is hosting a week-long summer institute “Finding Balance and Bounty at a Comprehensive University” through July 20. The overarching goal of the workshop is to prepare diverse senior graduate students and postdoctoral scholars for careers as STEM faculty members at CSU campuses. Thirty students and scholars are participating in the five-day workshop. The California State University Chancellor’s Office provided funding for the workshop. The week-long workshop is divided into two general parts: “Getting the Job” and “Keeping the Job” with respect to teaching, research, service and work life-balance. The agenda includes a number of guest speakers, including Dr. Brad Goodner of Hiram College at 10:15 a.m. Thursday and Dr. David Rockcliffe, a program director at the National Science Foundation, at 11:30 a.m. Thursday.
