Faculty Diversity Recruitment and Retention Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

2018 Post Doctoral Application Details

In 2013, the Dean of USD's College of Arts and Sciences created a faculty advisory committe charged with enhancing the recruitment and retention of diverse faculty for the College. In collaboration with various campus constituencies, the committee was tasked with designing a two-year diversity postdoctoral teaching/research academic fellowship program that serves the dual purpose of providing academic experience for diverse scholars and providing diverse faculty for our students. Additionally, the committee sought to explore ways to build mentorship and professional development into the fellowship.
