Leadership Training Initiative

The Leadership Training Initiative, which addresses climate and leadership barriers to recruitment, retention and advancement, includes the following programs/activities:

  • External Mentors Program provides career-development opportunities for eligible faculty of all ranks to work with a noted expert in their discipline in a manner that would help address barriers to involvement of women in STEMM disciplines and diverse faculty in all disciplines, with diversity defined in terms of an underrepresented minority status.
    • External Mentor program- Pilot Extension provides additional career-development support for eligible faculty who have previously successfully participated in the External Mentor program. The goal of the Pilot Extension is to provide External Mentor award recipients (in collaboration with their mentors) the support needed to carry out pilot investigations and obtain preliminary data for external funding applications. Only faculty with prior External Mentor funding will be considered for the Pilot Extension Program.
  • Leadership Training Program provides funds for proposals that have identified suitable leadership programs, training, or other opportunities expected to advance the faculty member in their leadership aspirations. This support is available to tenure-track and tenured women faculty in STEMM and diverse faculty in all disciplines.
