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.
