AGEP North Carolina Alliance
The AGEP-NC project, an Alliance of NC A&T State University, UNC Charlotte and NC State provides a catalyst for departments wishing to build an infrastructure for their doctoral programs and a culture among dissertation advisors that successfully prepares underrepresented minority (URM) dissertation students for faculty careers in the sciences and engineering.
Participating departments engage in a study of the pathways through their doctoral programs and a planning process resulting in a departmental plan for promoting the success of diverse doctoral students.
AGEP-NC Project Description
Our vision is to develop a corps of faculty fellows, department heads and directors of graduate programs leading their departments in planning and implementing enhancements to doctoral success for underrepresented minority dissertation students.
NC A&T State University, UNC Charlotte, and NC State share a commitment to increasing URM doctoral completion rates and progression to faculty careers.
