The Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) initiative was launched to prepare graduate students for faculty careers and stems from an understanding that doctoral students aspiring to faculty careers must be prepared for all aspects of a faculty member’s role: teaching, research, and service. This resource intends to describe the development, implementation, and assessment of PFF and similar programs. It is designed to be useful to graduate deans and other university leaders, faculty who teach graduate students, staff who develop faculty programs, and graduate students interested in the design and evaluation of PFF programs.

This report provides evidence needed to understand program impacts, as well as tips from prior Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) programs for collecting and analyzing data for program evaluation.
