|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); andis 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.
The Institute runs Tuesday and Wednesday, June 18 and 19th; and begins with a panel open to the public:
Critical Moments in the Racial History of my Discipline
Monday, June 17 from 4-5:30pm in Sturm Hall Room 151
All are invited to attend a free faculty panel discussion to kick-off to our 2nd annual Summer Doctoral Institute. Panelists will represent various disciplines including Anthropology, Psychology, Social Work and Law to name a few. See PDF flyer.
Following the program, a reception will be held for all Institute participants and panel attendees in the Colorado Women's College Garden Room. Please RSVP by Friday June 14th at email@example.com.
