Holmes Scholars Opportunities at AACTE’s 2015 Annual Meeting
The AACTE Holmes Scholars® Program is one of the Association’s hallmark offerings on diversity and will be featured in a variety of sessions at the 67th Annual Meeting in Atlanta, February 27-March 1.
In addition to dedicated preconference programming, attending Holmes Scholars will participate in the full range of Annual Meeting offerings under the theme Advancing the Imperative, from major forums and general and concurrent sessions to the town hall meeting and the job fair.
Participation in the Holmes Scholars program is open to all AACTE member institutions that offer doctoral programs in education. Participating institutions identify scholars who are doctoral students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds and who are pursuing careers in education; the program provides these scholars with mentorship, peer support, and professional development opportunities.
During the preconference portion of AACTE’s 2015 Annual Meeting, Holmes Scholars will present their research during two symposia. The Holmes Scholars Council will also host a panel session, “The Politics of Higher Education: How to Thrive in the Academy,” and additional sessions will offer an open venue for prospective members to learn more about the program.
