Project AHEAD: Achieving Higher Education Administration Diversity
With fewer than 20 African-American, Hispanic American and Native American Deans at majority business schools in the U.S., the need for administrative diversity has become increasingly evident. Project AHEAD encourages tenured minority faculty to explore positions in administration. Following The PhD Project model, this program offers resources and support by hosting webinars and providing mentors to help members on this path.
Understanding the Search Process
Seasoned PhD Project faculty joined current Deans and representatives from leading search firms to explore this path at our AHEAD session held during The PhD Project 2012 Annual Conference in Chicago. View a video from this event to learn more.
