Outside mentoring support for science faculty at minority-serving institutions pays off
Date:9/4/2013

eating a diverse scientific work force in the U.S. The VP Program offers value for money, they point out. Over the 15 year life of the program the annual cost per participant has been roughly $6,000, although VP Program also relies on the generosity of the host scientists to take on a Visiting Professor and the willingness of their home institutions to allow them to take part. Yet it is the personal scale of the VP Program, the researchers conclude, that seems the key to success. "The patient, often person-by-person investment in faculty development promises to ultimately translate into educational gains that benefit the larger scientist community in terms of scientific productivity and workforce development."
