Joint Hampton-Michigan Program for Training Minority and Women Researchers. Volume I of II Volumes. Final Report.
Morrison, Betty Mae; And Others
The primary purpose of the Joint Hampton-Michigan program was to train 15 post-doctoral minority and women faculty members from the Hampton Institute (Virginia) and the University of Michigan in educational research skills. A secondary purpose was to investigate the effectiveness of several models through which the researchers were trained. The three models consisted of: (1) a dyad composed of a Hampton Institute junior faculty member and a University of Michigan senior faculty member; (2) a triad with a Hampton Institute junior faculty member, a University of Michigan senior faculty member, and a University of Michigan doctoral student; and (3) a triad composed of a Hampton Institute junior faculty member and University of Michigan senior and junior faculty members. Questionnaires, participant logs, and interviews were used to evaluate the program. It was noted that the dyads tended to become triads, through merging with other groups or by involving other staff members or graduate students. The triads were found to enhance a collegial, rather than a tutorial, relationship among participants. A major difficulty throughout the program was time restraints, especially for the Hampton Institute faculty, who had more duties than the other participants. Peer support emerged as an important success factor for the participants, who profited from the opportunity to interact with peers outside their specialization. Conference presentations, published articles, and dissertations were among the results of the program and are described in this report. (FG)
