Increasing faculty diversity by recruiting promising Ph.D.s
We all benefit when we are able to access a full spectrum of unique perspectives, which is why we need exceptional faculty members who represent the diversity of our community. A new program premised on recruiting diverse future faculty earlier in their careers as post-doctoral associates and providing a pathway to a tenure-track position will help us achieve this goal. The University recently introduced the President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, which will create a framework for identifying and attracting diverse postdocs to the University of Minnesota.
Your gift to these new initiatives will increase the diversity of our faculty by creating a new pathway for Ph.D.s.
