PA-7: Support for Future Faculty Diversity
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:
1. The California Pre-Doctoral Program is designed to increase the diversity of the pool of potential university faculty by supporting the doctoral aspirations of individuals who are current upper division or graduate students in the CSU, economically and educationally disadvantaged, U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and leaders of tomorrow.
2. The Chancellor's Doctoral Incentive Program offers financial support, mentoring, and professional development in support of pursuit of a doctoral degree. Must be enrolled full-time in a doctoral program in the U.S to apply. Loan forgiveness at 20% per year for full-time teaching beyond the doctorate is available.
3. The California Forums for Diversity in Graduate Education, planned by a consortium of public and private colleges and universities from throughout California, have been designed particularly to meet the needs of advanced undergraduates and master's candidates who belong to groups that are currently underrepresented in doctoral-level programs. The groups include low-income and first-generation college students and especially African Americans, American Indians, Chicanos/Latinos, Filipinos, Pacific Islanders, Asian American women, and Asian American men in the arts, humanities, and social and behavioral sciences. CI has had the honor of hosting the 20th Annual California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education on Saturday, April 17, 2010. The Forum brings together approximately 1,000 pre-selected, high-achieving undergraduate and master’s students. The students will have an opportunity to explore graduate opportunities and resources by participating in numerous workshops conducted throughout the day. Students will also attend a graduate school recruitment fair where they will have an opportunity to interact with program recruiters from across the United States.
