An AGEP Alliance Model to Advance Underrepresented Minority STEM Faculty at Predominately Undergraduate Institutions

The AGEP PUI Alliance brings together Stony Brook University, Farmingdale State College, Suffolk County Community College and Brookhaven National Laboratory to develop and implement a model of training and support for URM STEM PhD candidates with an interest in a PUI faculty career. Participants in the program will benefit from the following activities.

  • Near-Peer & Alumni Mentoring Support
  • Professional Development Training
  • Pedagogy Training & Mentored Micro-Teaching Experiences
  • Career Development and Placement Assistance
  • Opportunities to Mentor Undergraduate Students
  • Conference Travel Funding Support

In addition, participants in the program will follow one of two paths.

  • Path 1: PhD 🡪 Faculty Position at PUI
  • Path 2: PhD 🡪 Postdoctoral Training 🡪 Faculty Position at PUI

After graduation, participants will receive ongoing mentoring, career development support and placement assistance through their postdoctoral training (if applicable) and first 3 years of their faculty appointment.
