Dr. LaTonya Williams, assistant professor of Political Science, has been selected as an ELEVATE 2016 Fellow!
Philadelphia’s Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) is offering training for 19 early career faculty members at MSIs. This annual program, ELEVATE (Enriching Learning, Enhancing Visibility & Training Educators), takes place June 15-June 17, 2016. ELEVATE is a three-day professional development opportunity created specifically to support the ongoing learning, training and networking of early career MSI faculty.
Hands-on workshops and informal discussions will cover topics such as grant writing, crafting a research agenda, expanding global education, teaching, and mentoring. Knowledge obtained from ELEVATE will help participants enhance the visibility of MSIs in national conversations by producing more high-quality research and practice.
This year’s cohort represents 16 different MSIs from 11 states. Join us in congratulating Dr. Williams on her selection for ELEVATE!
