Goal, Objectives, and Expectations


To develop, implement and study a model of STEM doctoral degree completion and the transition to successful postdoctoral fellowships and faculty careers for historically underrepresented minorities.



  1. To help URM STEM Ph.D. dissertators and postdoctoral fellows build professional identities as future members of the professoriate,
  2. To provide continued support and mentoring to help them succeed as junior faculty.


Expected Outcomes

The expected outcomes of the AGEP TxARM model is that all URM STEM dissertators will join the professoriate or post-doc ranks immediately following completion of their PhDs, and then those who enter the post-doc ranks will, within a three-year period, subsequently enter the professoriate.
