2021-2022 AAHHE Faculty Fellows Program
Call for Nominations
Deadline: June 18, 2021 by 11:59 p.m. EST
The American Association of Hispanics in Higher Education invites nominations for its 2021- 2022 AAHHE Faculty Fellows Program (FFP). The AAHHE Faculty Fellow Program is a six-month program with a primary goal to prepare Latina/o/x new faculty, who are beyond their first year on the tenure-track, for successful careers in academia and beyond and to increase the number of tenured and promoted Latina/o/x faculty.
The AAHHE FFP aims to a) provide strategies to assist tenure-track faculty in achieving their scholarly and career goals; b) build community and network with other Latina/o/x faculty; and c) develop future leaders who are dedicated to uplifting their communities. The AAHHE FFP will run from late September 2021 - March 2022.
We write to request your support in identifying applicants that would benefit from this program. We would appreciate it if you can forward this to deans, department chairs or faculty who can help identify prospective fellows. As former AAHHE faculty fellows, this program was instrumental in providing us with professional development opportunities that led to us earn tenure at our institutions.
To be considered, applicants must: a) be a Latina/o/x enrolled in a tenure-track position beyond year one by start of the AAHHE FFP; and b) exhibit a track record of service and fem/mentoring to the Latina/o/x community.
