Program for Early Career Excellence (PECE) Workshop Series

PECE is Now Open to All

So many faculty found the PECE workshop offerings incredibly valuable that going forward they will be open to all Rutgers faculty to maximize the number of faculty that can benefit. Don't worry we have created a myriad of ways to sustain community and ensure deeper engagement in smaller groups is maintained. 

Professional Advancement Workshops
