|Name of Department(s)||Academic Support Services
|Target Group||Faculty and Staff|
|Total Number Served||21 Identified Individuals|
|Time Line||Academic Year and Summer|
|Duration of Program||Continuing|
|Program Cost and Funding Sources|
1. A systematic means of identifying individuals with potential, so we can "grow our own" will be developed. This structure will allow existing faculty and staff to suggest individuals for this program and also permit individuals to nominate themselves. The structure will monitor the academic and professional development of those individuals. Special attention will also be focused on those who have participated in on-campus programs, including various precollege programs as well as such targeted programs as the McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program.
|EXPECTED OUTCOMES OR NEED FOR INITIATIVE/PROGRAM||
· Lists of individuals who have been identified as potential future faculty along with a record of their progress toward their degrees
|ACTUAL OUTCOMES OR EFFECTIVES OF IMPLEMENTATION ACTIVITIES||A formal structure as described in #1 above has not yet been developed. Informally, three groups of potential faculty members have been identified.
1. Nine multicultural individuals who are current members of the UW-W academic staff have been identified as potential faculty members. Two have earned terminal degrees and two others are nearing completion of their degrees. The others have enrolled in doctoral programs.There were two on-campus lectures during 2000-2001 by McNair alumni.
|FACTORS INFLUENCING PROGRAM OUTCOMES
||An internal factor influencing program outcomes is the support needed over a period of time to support an individual working to become a faculty member.
An external factor influencing program outcomes is the competition for multicultural faculty and staff.
|FUTURE PLANS; WILL YOU DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY, IF SO, WHY||We plan to formalize the process of identifying individuals with potential. Along with this, efforts will be undertaken to increase the support available for individuals seeking to become faculty and staff members.
We plan to continue to schedule lectures by McNair alumni.
