Description: Indiana University’s 16th Annual Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) Graduate Conference is a one-day event designed to provide graduate students, of all disciplines and at all phases of their educations, with important information about preparing for their future academic careers. The conference consists of four sessions addressing such graduate student concerns as progression toward the Ph.D., building a professional record, navigating the job market, acclimating to a new faculty position, and professional opportunities within and outside of academia. Each year the conference is organized by a committee of graduate students, lead by a PFF fellow appointed and funded by the Sociology department and the College of Arts and Sciences. Funding for the conference is provided by the Graduate School and various participating departments. Panelists are typically professors from IUB and surrounding universities. Special care is made to invite panelists from a diverse array of disciplines and institutions.
