Application Process

Applications for the 2023-2024 CCCIP cohort will open on Thursday, January 26th and close on Sunday, March 26th at 11:59pm.

Applications will be reviewed based on perceived benefit to the student, alignment of career goals with the CCCIP mission, and commitment to diversity and inclusion. Students do not have to have prior experience as a learner or instructor in the community college setting. Students without community college teaching experience are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applicants will be asked to answer several short-answer questions, receive approval from their home institution faculty advisor, and upload a copy of their updated resume or curriculum vitae.
