Topics will include doctoral degree requirements, academic ranking, tenure, promotion and tips for success in the academic world.

The workshop is intended for undergraduate and graduate students, educators, counselors and people interested in learning about issues specific to African American professors who teach in predominantly white colleges and universities. The Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity and International Affairs is the workshop sponsor.

The workshop will run from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 139, Shumaker Research Building, on the Belknap Campus. Although the workshop is free, space is limited and lunch is included, so reservations are required by Feb. 24 by calling 502-852-6153 or emailing Diane Whitlock.

UofL faculty members presenting at the workshop will be Sharon Moore, social work, whose research forms the basis of the workshop; Vicki Hines-Martin, nursing; Irving Joshua, physiology and biophysics; and Kevin Chapman, psychological and brain sciences.

For more information, call Sharon Moore at 502-852-0751.
