2018 Institute on Teaching and Mentoring will be held October 25-October 28 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.

The Institute on Teaching and Mentoring is the largest gathering of underrepresented minority Ph.D. scholars in the country. For over 24 years, the Institute has provided workshops, recruitment and networking opportunities to enhance the professional development of the Ph.D. scholars with effective tools to be successful as faculty in post-secondary institutions. The goal of the Institute is to provide a safe environment for doctoral scholars to share insights and survival tips for success in graduate work, build community among themselves and faculty representatives, and enrich their research and teaching strategies.

Registration for the 25th Annual Institute will begin in June 2018. Institute attendance is by invitation only. Some groups that are eligible for invitation include: SREB-State Doctoral Scholars Program, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Minority Ph.D. Program, National Science Foundation Alliances for Graduation and the Professoriate Program, National Aeronautics and Space Administration Harriett-Jenkins Predoctoral Fellowship Project, Gates Millennium Scholars Program, Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation, Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program, and the Student Support Services Program. In addition, Ph.D. scholars and faculty mentors from institutions not associated with any of the aforementioned groups can be recommended by their deans and department chairs to attend the Institute. All potential attendees will be issued an ID by SREB to be able to register for attendance at the Institute.
