|Dr. Roger Salters Inclusive Excellence Summer Institute for Doctoral Students
Promoting Inclusive Excellence in the Academy
Hosted by the Center for Multicultural Excellence, and the Office of Graduate Studies, the Dr. Roger Salters Institute is a two-day program designed to address the underrepresentation of faculty of color and women in academia. The Institute consists of seminars focusing on strategies for completing the dissertation, preparing a curriculum vita and cover letter, negotiating faculty contracts, publishing, balancing research, teaching and community service, understanding the tenure process, preparing a job talk, seeking and valuing mentoring and networking, the politics of obtaining tenure, and overcoming various employment obstacles and challenges.
The program is free to participants (meals and materials are included), and was held June 26-27, 2012. Watch for details on the 2013 Institute.
The program is open only to DU doctoral students, and preference is given to students who have not yet advanced to candidacy. Both faculty nominations and self-nominations are accepted. The Institute committee seeks applicants who are underrepresented in their field, women, students of color, or students who are addressing aspects of Inclusive Excellence in their scholarship.
