New faculty diversity programs launch for PROMISE, and the Twitter site gets a new look showcasing the #ThinkBigDiversity landing page


Did you know that there are new PROMISE programs that will focus on faculty diversity in engineering and the biomedical sciences? The PROMISE Academy was funded in October 2018 and bears the official title:

The AGEP Alliance State System Model to Transform the Hiring Practices and Career Success of Tenure Track Historically Underrepresented Minority Faculty in Biomedical Sciences

The PROMISE Engineering Institute is funded by NSF’s Engineering Division, and focuses on preparing diverse engineering graduate students and postdocs for the professoriate, and exploring ways to support the professional development of early-career engineering faculty.

A new landing page has been developed to capture the University System of Maryland’s NSF-funding pipeline professional development programs, based on our #ThinkBigDiversity hashtag: https://thinkbigdiversity.com/
