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.
