UC Irvine / CSU Long Beach PRE-Professor Program Information Session 

Date:         Tuesday, October 1, 2019

Time:        2 pm - 3:30 pm 

Location:   Graduate Resource Center (map

The PRE-Professor Program (PREPP) is designed to support the University of California, Irvine (UCI) doctoral students’ and postdoctoral scholars’ transition to a faculty position by engaging them in a semester-long program at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB).

PREPP is a blueprint to support CSULB’s efforts to foster a pipeline for prospective new faculty. The goal of PREPP is to immerse participants in the life of a faculty member at a comprehensive master’s granting institution. PREPP fellows will have individual mentorship from an experienced Faculty Mentor in two broad categories: Instruction and Understanding the Campus Culture and Service.

For spring 2020 we are only accepting applications from candidates with expertise in health related fields (broadly defined to include biomedical and behavioral sciences, such as biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, health disparities, health science, kinesiology, psychology, etc.). Underrepresented students are encouraged to apply.

Learn more about the program and application process by attending the upcoming PREPP Information Session. Registere here: PREPP Registration Form
