Advisory faculty

« Back to Preparing Future Faculty Program

VCU faculty represent the finest American and international graduate institutions and enhance the university’s position among important institutions of higher learning through their work in the classroom, laboratory, studio, clinic and as published in scholarly journals.

Central to the success of the VCU PFF Program is the participation of a number of highly qualified and experienced graduate faculty who are deeply committed to the preparation of the next generation of the professoriate.
