ACW: Academic Career Workshop for Underrepresented Junior Faculty and Senior Graduate Students

It is well known that mentoring activities are critical for successful promotions in the professoriate. Such activities are especially needed for ethnic minorities and people with disabilities in the field of computing, where the number at a given institution is usually very small. The goal of the workshop is to mentor under-represented assistant- and associate-level faculty and senior doctoral students about the academic career ladder. The workshop will include panels of diverse senior faculty talking about the tenure and promotion process, launching a research program, professionalism, and a detailed session on proposal writing. In addition, the workshop will include a discussion about alternative career paths. The workshops are funded by the NSF BPC Demonstration Project CNS 0634272.
