Faculty Diversity Internship Program

The SMCCCD FDIP aims to benefit both interns and mentors through mentorship, collaborative teaching, professional development workshops, and networking. The FDIP is a one semester program, but interns may apply to participate in the program for a second semester on the recommendation of the faculty mentor and approval of the Division Dean.

Participation in the FDIP requires a commitment of time and resources. Interns receive a $500 stipend and mentors receive compensation for 20 hours at the special rate on the appropriate salary schedule.

FDIP introduces participants to the community college environment and to the rich diversity of students attending the district colleges–Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and Skyline College. FDIP recruits interns in support of a wide range of community college disciplines (and especially for those disciplines for which there is an anticipated shortage of qualified faculty). FDIP enhances community college efforts toward building a diverse and representative faculty (Title 5, §53501).

The SMCCCD FDIP provides participants the following opportunities:

1. Mentorship

2. Collaborative Teaching

3. FDIP Workshops/Professional Development

4. Community College Networking
