Does the institution administer and/or participate in a program or programs to help build a diverse faculty that meet the criteria for this credit?:

A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty:

President’s Graduate Opportunity Program (PGOP) – The major purpose of the PGOP Program is to recruit, retain, and support African-American students engaged in graduate study leading to a doctoral degree from Auburn University. Fifteen students each year receive a $10,000 PGOP Fellowship, in addition to a stipend provided by the department, school, or college in which recipients are enrolled. Both the fellowship and stipend are renewable for up to three years of doctoral study. https://www.auburn.edu/academic/provost/odma/pdf/pgop.pdf

Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Program – The Bridge to the Doctorate Program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and provides financial support to eligible students for two years of graduate study in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics disciplines. The goal of the program is to increase the production of new minority PhDs and their entrance into productive faculty or research careers. BD Fellows receive a $30,000 annual stipend, cost-of-education allowance for tuition and fees, mentoring programs, conference and research travel opportunities, seminars and workshops, graduate and professional student associations, and academic enrichment experiences. https://cws.auburn.edu/diversity/pm/bdf_fellows
