I started my complex analysis class, with 19 students enrolled, and a couple of them told me my website contains the best Canvas shells they have ever seen. Thank you so much, and I would’ve never been able to do it without your help!

Luca Fabrizio Di Cerbo, UF Assistant Professor

 

I just wanted to thank you for this semester. Preparing Future Faculty has given me so much useful information about my career possibilities that I gained a lot of confidence and desire to explore what I’ll do next. More importantly, you all are such an amazing group of people. I felt very much affirmed and encouraged in what I do. There are no words to express enough gratitude for that.
