Event Sponsor: AAHHE Faculty Fellows Program,
The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education invites nominations for its 2021- 2022 AAHHE Faculty Fellows Program (FFP). The AAHHE Faculty Fellow Program is a six-month program with a primary goal to prepare Latina/o/x new faculty, who are beyond their first year on the tenure-track, for successful careers in academia and beyond and to increase the number of tenured and promoted Latina/o/x faculty.
The AAHHE FFP aims to a) provide strategies to assist tenure-track faculty in achieving their scholarly and career goals; b) build community and network with other Latina/o/x faculty, and c) develop future leaders who are dedicated to uplifting their communities. The AAHHE FFP will run from late September 2021 - March 2022.
To be considered, applicants must: a) be a Latina/o/x enrolled in a tenure-track position beyond year one by the start of the AAHHE FFP; and b) exhibit a track record of service and fem/mentoring to the Latina/o/x community.
