The workshops target participants from the following underrepresented communities: African Americans/Blacks, Native Americans/Indigenous, Hispanics/Latinx, and People with Disabilities.

The workshops include panels of diverse senior faculty discussing the following topics:

  • Tenure and promotion process
  • Launching a research program
  • Effective teaching strategies
  • Promotion to full professor
  • Faculty interview process
  • Effective strategies for proposal writing
  • Affinity Research Group Model for effective research teams

The workshops also include a panel of representatives from different funding agencies and mock proposal review sessions, whereby participants have an opportunity to review actual proposals. The mock review sessions provide significant insights into proposal writing.

The workshops are funded by the NSF grant, CNS1832169.
