PROMISE Spring Opening Dinner Meeting: “Getting to Level 10” — Friday, 2/18/11

In PROMISE: Maryland's AGEP on February 17, 2011 at 2:28 PM

PROMISE: Maryland’s AGEP is dedicated to increasing the numbers and diversity of Ph.D.s in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math fields. PROMISE also provides a strong support system for underrepresented students of all fields, and for all graduate students.

This UMBC Spring Opening Meeting will be combined with the meeting for the Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program and will provide candid information and discussion for underrepresented minority students (particularly from Hispanic, African-American, American Indian, Alaska Native, and Pacific Islander backgrounds) about preparations for postdoctoral and professional opportunities that have to begin as a graduate student, overcoming stereotyped challenges, and mentoring.

Come out on Friday, February 18, 2011, at 4:30 PM (Location: Public Policy Building, Room 206, UMBC Campus) for dinner, connections, and community. Learn survival tips and receive an introduction to the concept of “Getting to Level 10.”

This opening meeting will be co-sponsored by the Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program.

Our speakers will be UMBC graduates (alumni of the Meyerhoff Graduate Fellows Program) who are now postdoctoral fellows.

* Dr. Carlise Bethel, Johns Hopkins, Department of Pathology


* Dr. Marquis Walker, Johns Hopkins
