PFF program offers a "PFF Certificate" to students who document completion of a certain number of activities related to preparing for an academic career. Completion of this certificate is noted on the student's transcript, and can be noted on a curriculum vita as evidence of teaching preparation. Any ODU degree-seeking graduate student is eligible for the PFF Certificate. ODU adjunct and post-doctoral students are also eligible for the certificate.
Requirements for the PFF Certificate were revised in Fall 2013. To earn the PFF Certificate a student should 1) fill out the appropriate PFF Certificate Application Form, and 2) document completion of the requirements for the certificate.
The Application Form and documentation should be submitted to Dr. Wie Yusuf, PFF Steering Committee Chair, Urban Studies & Public Administration, 2096 Constant Hall. Materials will be reviewed by the Steering Committee and, if approved, a certificate will be issued.
