PROMISE SSI 2015 Registration and Information

The PROMISE SSI is an annual event that has been in existence since 2003. All PROMISE alumni are welcome to return! Professionals in the area are welcome to attend to be part of this networking, professional development, and community building event. The SSI will feature plenaries, interactive sessions, and workshops to serve three groups: first year graduate students, continuing graduate students, and the PROMISE PP&P group of postdocs/professors/professionals. PROMISE is an AGEP program that is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The workshops and focus of the SSI will concentrate on professional development and issues that will train and inform stakeholders who are interested in increasing the numbers and diversity of graduate students in STEM fields who will participate as college faculty at some point in their future careers. Underrepresented graduate students and PP&P constituents from STEM fields, from any institution or organization in Maryland, are especially invited to attend. The conference is open to, and welcomes participants from all backgrounds and all disciplines. The 2015 SSI will be held at The Hotel at Arundel Preserve, in Hanover, MD.
