Invitation to AACTE Holmes Scholars® Job Fair, Information Session

AACTE invites institutions to participate in a job fair for AACTE Holmes Scholars® to be held Sunday, March 2, at the 2014 Annual Meeting in Indianapolis.

AACTE proudly continues to host the Holmes Scholars® Program, one of the great benefits of AACTE membership. This unique program provides mentorship, peer support, and rich professional development opportunities to doctoral students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds who are pursuing careers in education.

The Holmes Scholars® Job Fair is part of a robust program of activities for the Scholars at the 2014 Annual Meeting that also includes research presentations, mentoring, and networking events. The job fair will provide an opportunity for AACTE members to meet and recruit current AACTE Holmes Scholars® for future or currently available positions. Over the years, many institutions have found excellent candidates for faculty, research, and other positions through the job fair.

The Job Fair will take place March 2 from 3:45 to 5:15 p.m. in White River Ballroom E of the JW Marriott Indianapolis. Participant institutions will each be provided a table at which to display information about the institution’s job opportunities. There is no additional cost to participate for AACTE member institutions with individuals registered for the Annual Meeting; nonmembers and nonregistered member institutions will be assessed a participation fee. Space is limited and available on a first-come basis.

In addition, if you are interested in creating a Holmes Scholars® program at your institution—or if you already have one and would like to learn what others are doing—please join us for an informational session where current Holmes program coordinators and deans will share their strategies on how to create and sustain a successful program. This session will take place Saturday, March 1, from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. in the White River Ballroom B of the JW Marriott Indianapolis.
