Faculty Recruitment and Retention Journal Club

A group of people on a computer screen next to an open book


In years past, the Journal Club had focused on reviewing readings to increase the recruitment and retention of historically disenfranchised populations in STEM disciplines. But now, the Journal Club has been opened to include all disciplines. These virtual meetings will focus on readings about best practices and research on faculty recruitment and mentoring, as well as other related topics. Journal Club leaders will engage attendees in a discussion about the reading during any one of the monthly meeting dates.

**All meetings will take place from noon to 1 p.m.
