Postdoctoral Faculty Fellowship Program. Final Report.
Golden, M. Patricia; And Others
The Postdoctoral Faculty Fellowship Program at Northeastern University, which provided opportunities for professional development and research/publication to full-time minority and women faculty, is described. The program, which was federally funded by the Experimental Program for Opportunities in Advanced Study and Research in Education, enabled participants time-out from the home institution with full-time research support for one academic year. Nine minority and women postdoctoral fellows received support during the 3-year project. To facilitate professional development (tenure and advancement), the program provided opportunities for, and assistance in, improving research skills, initiating and writing research proposals, and presenting research findings in colloquia and other forums. Finally, opportunities for association were provided by supporting fellows' participation in professional meetings where they could disseminate their work, expand their professional networks, and enhance their future participation and recognition in educational research and decision making. Program evaluation results are discussed, along with policy implications. (SW)
