Faculty & Administrators

MSI faculty members are life-long learners and educators who are constantly in pursuit of personal and professional excellence. In an effort to support the ongoing development of early-career MSI faculty, the Rutgers Center for Minority Serving Institutions will draw from our expertise to offer ELEVATE.

Supported by a grant from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, ELEVATE will bring together early-career MSI faculty to further equip them with support, training, and an opportunity to create a close-knit network of peers. This three-day program will provide early-career MSI faculty with a unique professional development experience that will do the following:

ENRICH LEARNING- Fellows will have the opportunity to further develop their skills through workshops that will cover academic writing, grant writing, teaching, and mentoring. ELEVATE will further enrich fellows’ learning by providing sessions geared towards helping early-career MSI faculty navigate the professoriate.

ENHANCE VISIBILITY- Two key goals of the Center are to elevate the educational contributions of MSIs to ensure their participation in national conversations and to increase rigorous scholarship on MSIs. Through their rigorous research, MSI faculty members contribute to fulfilling these goals. Thus, ELEVATE will offer workshops that will further fellows’ skills in producing and publishing MSI-related research. Knowledge obtained from these workshops will allow early career MSI faculty to enhance the visibility of MSIs in national conversations by producing high-quality research.

TRAIN EDUCATORS- All ELEVATE workshops will serve as training for early-career MSI faculty to enhance their capabilities as researchers, scholars, and educators. Bringing together MSI faculty and providing training in key areas will perpetuate the goals of the Center by giving MSI faculty a space to build partnerships across MSIs that will increase efficiency and optimize resources.
