Henry Willis, a graduate student in Clinical Psychology, was selected as a Faculty First-Look (FFL) Scholar at New York University.
New York University invites talented scholars of color and others underrepresented in the Academy who are completing their Ph.D., Ed.D., or other relevant terminal degrees. The FFL program provides a glimpse into what it takes to prepare for future faculty careers, particularly in disciplines and field represented within the NY Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. NYU Steinhard uniquely integrates education, communication, health, and the arts with 11 departments, 17 research centers and institutes, 292 full-time faculty, and almost 7,000 students. FFL participants will have the opportunity to engage with NYU deans, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows to learn how to prepare for the faculty recruitment, application, interview, and selection process, deliver an effective job talk, cultivate job prospects, negotiate job offers, use digital/social medial platforms to increase scholarly visibility, and formally and informally network with and present their scholarly work.
