1. ABSTRACT DEADLINE APPROACHES FOR THE 2020 AICHE ANNUAL MEETING
It’s not too late to submit to present in the Education Division at the 2020 AIChE Annual Meeting in San Francisco! Titles of planned sessions are below, and the deadline to submit an abstract is April 8.
Encourage your colleagues doing interesting things in their classrooms to present in the EdDiv as well as in their technical division!
2. FUTURE FACULTY MENTORING PROGRAM: CALL FOR MENTORS
INITIAL CALL! Application Deadline is Friday September 4, 2020!
The Future Faculty Mentoring Program is seeking experienced Chemical Engineering faculty (tenure track and teaching/continuing track) to take part in a year-long mentoring program for prospective faculty, and we need YOU!
Take this opportunity to mentor a senior graduate student or post-doc who is seeking a chemical engineering faculty position. Help them navigate the application process, the interview, the offer, the negotiation, the start-up package, and provide advice on their research and teaching ideas. Are there things you wish you had known when going through the process? Then this is your chance to impart that wisdom to the next up-and-coming generation of ChemE faculty!
For more information and to apply to be a mentor, please visit the Ed Div website at:
We always are mentor-limited (especially for female faculty), and have many more mentee applicants than we can serve - so if you can’t participate this year, please consider forwarding this on to other colleagues that you think would be great mentors!
For any questions regarding the program, please contact Daniel Burkey at email@example.com.
3. MISSED ED-DIV’S ONLINE TEACHING WEBINAR? RECORDING AVAILABLE!

4. ED-DIV VIRTUAL COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE
