Diversity Postdoctoral Faculty Program

2019 call for applications coming mid-December

 

In 2013, the dean of USD's College of Arts and Sciences created a faculty advisory committee charged with enhancing the recruitment and retention of diverse faculty for the College. In collaboration with various campus constituencies, the committee was tasked with designing a two-year diversity postdoctoral teaching/research academic faculty program that serves the dual purpose of providing academic experience for diverse scholars and providing diverse faculty for our students. Additionally, the committee has sought to explore ways to build mentorship and professional development into the program.
