The Institute on Teaching and Mentoring is the largest gathering
of underrepresented minority Ph.D. scholars in the
country. For the last 26 years, the Institute has provided
workshops, recruitment and networking opportunities to enhance
the professional development of the Ph.D. scholars with effective
tools to be successful as faculty in post-secondary institutions
and other appropriate professions.
A study funded by the National Science Foundation now confirms
the Institute on Teaching and Mentoring’s effectiveness in its
mission of increasing the diversity of faculty on U.S. campuses,
proving it an excellent complement to university doctoral
training. This publication summarizes results of the full study, which surveyed nearly
2,000 participants of the Institute from 2011 to 2016 and
compared the results against data from the Survey of Doctorate
Recipients for a national benchmark of Ph.D. graduates.
With funding from the National Science Foundation, a 2018 study
surveyed nearly 2,000 participants of the Institute on Teaching
and Mentoring from 2011 to 2016 and compared the results against
data from the Survey of Doctorate Recipients for a national
benchmark of Ph.D. graduates. David Feldon conducted the study
with a grant from the NSF Directorate for Education and Human
Resources, Division of Human Resource Development.
