Study Shows Annual Institute Is an Effective Strategy

Publication September 20196 pages(19E07)

Since 1994, the Institute on Teaching and Mentoring has helped thousands of minority Ph.D. scholars complete their doctorates and succeed as faculty members. A 2018 study funded by the National Science Foundation now confirms the Institute’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 brochure summarizes the study that 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.
