Accomplishing Career Choice Exploration for Scholar Scientists—Primarily Undergraduate Institutions

ACCESS to PUIs is a joint program sponsored by Goucher College and Stevenson University in Baltimore, Maryland. ACCESS to PUIs was inspired by the Collaborative Teaching Fellowship Program (CTFP) that is run by Johns Hopkins University. This program provides teaching opportunities to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at both Hopkins and University of Maryland. The CTFP program gives teaching fellows hands-on teaching experience at local small colleges and universities. with faculty mentors for a semester in order for them to be exposed to practices of pedagogy

Our ACCESS to PUIs program uses the fellowship model, along with a more intensive mentoring and information session schedule. There are three main components of the program. Each component is designed to support the teaching fellow as well as to provide context and relevance to teaching at a primary undergraduate institution.
