AGEP Transformation Alliance:
The National Science Foundation funds the Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program. The AGEP program goal is to increase the number of historically underrepresented minority faculty, in specific STEM disciplines and STEM education research fields, by advancing knowledge about pathways to career success. The program objectives include: To support the development, implementation and study of innovative models of doctoral education, postdoctoral training, and faculty advancement for historically underrepresented minorities in specific STEM disciplines and/or STEM education research fields; and to advance knowledge about the underlying issues, policies and practices that have an impact on the participation, transitions and advancement of historically underrepresented minorities in the STEM academy.
At Texas A&M University - Commerce
In collaboration with eight partner universities, and over the course of five years, the project will utilize tools and networking through the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL). The project will integrate research with practice to refine faculty and graduate-peer initiatives to increase the number of underrepresented graduate students and postdocs interested in and prepared for faculty careers. To improve the number of underrepresented graduate students and postdocs interested in faculty careers in STEM, RRG is working in collaboration with Iowa State Graduate College to collect data surrounding climate in graduate education and conducting an analysis of data at two partner Universities.
