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

UW-Stout offers the McNair Scholars Program, a federal Department of Education TRIO grant with the purpose of addressing under-represented students in graduate education. Specifically, we take 28 undergraduate students and prepare them for graduate school with a focus on Ph.D/teaching degrees. We offer mentoring, financial literacy information, assistance in applying to graduate school and graduate school funding, research opportunities, presentation and networking opportunities, cultural/leadership events, and other activities designed to increase the likelihood of students who will attend and complete graduate education. We’ve had great success in helping our under-represented students go onto graduate school.

We also offer grants/financial resources for students of color to pursue graduate studies at UW-Stout through the Advanced Opportunity Program.
