The Academy for Future Faculty (AFF), one of several CIRTL@TAMU programs, provides professional development in teaching for graduate students preparing for a career in higher education. Anchored by faculty mentorship and featuring weekly seminars and workshops, AFF events are free and open to all graduate students and post-doctoral trainees in the Texas A&M University academic community. Participants may choose to attend select events or to complete all requirements for the Academy for Future Faculty Fellow certificate, which also qualifies the student for a CIRTL* Associate certificate. Participants have the option to complete the Academy for Future Faculty Fellow Certificate Program in one or two semesters, or even over two academic years.
While the AFF serves as a supplement to research-oriented programs by assisting graduate students with the teaching component of their career preparation, it is not teaching assistant training per se. Instead, the AFF provides broader benefits applicable to all graduate students, whether currently teaching or preparing for teaching in the future. These benefits include:
· Opportunity to learn from a diverse pool of professors known for excellence in teaching.
· Mentorship in the area of teaching in higher education environments.
· Exploration of career paths.
· Development of teaching portfolio materials for use in academic job searches.
· Advanced professional development opportunities for AFF Fellows: earn the Senior Fellow Certificate, leadership opportunities, research projects, and participation in forums or learning communities on college teaching.
Interested graduate students are encouraged to visit the website http://cte.tamu.edu/Graduate-Student-Support or find us on Facebook. The Academy for Future Faculty is co-sponsored by the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies and the Center for Teaching Excellence.

The Becky Gates Children's Center (BGCC) is a licensed and accredited early childhood educational program located on the Texas A&M University campus, 1125 Hensel Drive. We are for Texas A&M University students, faculty, and staff affiliated with main campus. BGCC is licensed for 165 children ages 12 months - 6 years, and we are open M-F, 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m., year-round.
Becky Gates Children's Center philosophy aligns with the HighScope Curriculum. We believe children learn best through active participatory play to construct their knowledge. Active learning is at the core of adult-child interactions, the learning environment, daily routines, and observational assessment. BGCC supports children's play, uses encouragement, uses a problem-solving approach to social conflict, and forms authentic relationships with all children.
If you are interested in enrolling your child, please visit our website, read the Family Handbook, and complete the waitlist application.
BGCC also serves as a support location for Texas A&M University students and faculty for educational and professional goals. We work closely with different academic departments to provide educational opportunities and experiences for students. This includes observations, practicums, internships, research, projects, and field experiences. If research falls under jurisdiction of the Institutional Review Board (IRB) for Human Subjects Research we will notify families of the research and IRB approval number. If you are interested in partnering with the Becky Gates Children's Center, please contact the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Established in 1983, the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) supports the University’s commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. CTE offers consultation and support services to faculty, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and staff. Specifically, CTE offers a wide range of programs supporting the professional development in teaching of graduate students currently serving as teaching assistants within their departments, preparing for a career in higher education, and/or preparing for a career in industry requiring skills in public speaking and communication, instruction, and mentorship. Graduate students have the option to participate in a variety of program formats including workshops, learning communities, teaching academies, teaching conferences, individual consultation, and English language instruction. CTE works collaboratively with colleges and service organizations across campus to provide continuity of service when in support of the University’s mission. Programs we provide include, but are not limited to the following: Teaching Assistant Institute (TAI); Academy for Future Faculty (AFF); College Classroom Teaching Course; Graduate Teaching Consultant (GTC); English Language Proficiency Instruction (CTE-ELP).

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) is a national network of universities and colleges that are focused on teaching and learning in higher education. CIRTL uses graduate education as the leverage point to develop a national STEM faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse student audiences as part of successful professional careers. The goal of CIRTL is to improve the STEM learning of all students at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation.
Established in fall 2006, the CIRTL Network was comprised of Howard University, Michigan State University, Texas A&M University, University of Colorado at Boulder, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Vanderbilt University. After substantial expansions in 2011 and 2016, the Network now includes 43 research universities across the nation. The diversity of these institutions -- private/public; large/moderate size; majority-/minority-serving; geographic location -- is by design aligned with CIRTL's mission.
As a local member of the CIRTL network, CIRTL@TAMU works collaboratively with the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the academic colleges. Through collaboration, the CIRTL@TAMU offers a range of local and national teaching and learning opportunities for graduate students in STEM and Non-STEM fields at Texas A&M University. These opportunities help students learn and apply the principles of teaching as research in a supportive context of one or more local learning communities that are infused with the pillars of CIRTL: Learning-through-Diversity, Learning Community, and Teaching as Research. Students who engage with the network can earn CIRTL certification at the Associate, Practitioner, and Scholar levels.
More information about CIRTL@TAMU and opportunities to get involved can be found on the on the following website: http://cirtl.tamu.edu/

Graduate Resources and Development for Aggies (G.R.A.D. Aggies) is a collaborative effort of eight university-level academic support units providing workshops, seminars, training events, and online resources open to all graduate and professional students. Facilitated by the Office of Graduate and Professional Studies, G.R.A.D. Aggies programming falls under four broad competency areas: academic development, leadership and communication development, instruction and assessment, and career development. These workshops are designed to provide those “soft skills” not addressed directly in discipline-based coursework that employers cite as essential to applicants’ competitiveness.
The G.R.A.D. Aggies certificate program, launched in the Fall of 2015, offers students the opportunity to spotlight their participation in professional development events and enhance their CV or resume. This program promotes deeper engagement for students who attend G.R.A.D. Aggies Events. The certificate is offered at three levels: Basic, Intermediate and Advanced, all at no cost to the student. All G.R.A.D. Aggies events are listed on the G.R.A.D. Aggies Calendar and earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) that accumulate to reach the desired certificate level. Achieving certificate requirements for the Basic level requires earning a minimum of 6 PDU credits, completing the corresponding short assignment for each event within one month of attendance, and submitting a final program reflection. Intermediate and Advanced Certificates require an increased number of PDUs for completion, as well as other activities. Student engagement in the G.R.A.D. Aggies certificate program is tracked through eCampus.
A weekly G.R.A.D. Aggies eNewsletter is sent to all graduate and professional students to alert them to ongoing professional development activities associated with G.R.A.D. Aggies as well as other professional development opportunities and resources. OGAPS also facilitates the G.R.A.D. Aggies calendar (see https://calendar.tamu.edu/gradaggies/#!view/all) and a Professional Development Portal that are online repositories of professional development opportunities available at Texas A&M at the department, college, or university level and enable quick searching of opportunities across campus (see http://ogaps.tamu.edu/profdev-portal). Students can also subscribe to the G.R.A.D. Aggies calendar to have events auto populate to their smart phone or device.
