The Roger Salters Summer Doctoral Institute

Entering it's third year, the Salters Summer Doctoral Institute is a two-day program designed to encourage doctoral students from historically marginalized groups and women to pursue faculty and administrative positions in academia. The Salters Institute provides doctoral students with insights, information, and words of wisdom from faculty and adminsitrators who have spent their careers navigating the racialized and gendered reality of academe.

Named after the distinguished Dr. Roger Salters, the institute continues his work by engaging doctoral students from historically marginalized populations with the opportunity to engage with current faculty of color through panel discussions, presentations, and plenary sessions regarding the ins and outs of becoming a faculty member.

This summer the Salters Institute will be partnering throughout the program with the Empirical Critical Race Theory conference (eCRT) co-hosted by the University of Denver Law School, Graduate School of Social Work, Morgridge School of Education, etc. Scholars in Law, the social sciences, and education from around the nation will be joining together to consider the empirical research possibilities and struggles of Critical Race Theory.

The Institute will begin Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at 2pm and continue to Thursday June 19, 2014 at 5pm.
