The University of San Francisco invites applications for the Gerardo Marín Diversity Dissertation Fellowship for the 2022-2023 academic year. The Gerardo Marín Diversity Fellowship seeks to increase the presence of currently underrepresented racial and ethnic groups in the U.S. professoriate by supporting advanced doctoral candidates during completion of their dissertation.
Fellows complete their dissertation and initiate an ongoing program of scholarly or creative work while becoming familiar with the usual service responsibilities of a university faculty member. The Gerardo Marín fellows will form a cohort of at least 4 scholars university-wide. Each fellow will be mentored by a senior faculty member, under the guidance of the Dean in partnership with the Senior Vice Provost for Equity, Inclusion and Faculty Excellence. Fellows teach one course in their discipline each semester and engage in service within their school/college or at the university-wide level, depending on interests. The program will provide compensation and limited support for relocation and research-related expenses. Additional support includes access to office space and library privileges, professional development opportunities offered by the USF Tracy Seeley Center for Teaching Excellence and Center for Research, Artistic, and Scholarly Excellence, and a free membership with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity.
The University of San Francisco is ideally suited to host this fellowship program dedicated to bolstering a diverse and inclusive professoriate. U.S. News and World Reports ranks USF number one in the nation for the racial/ethnic diversity of its students. Moreover, USF sustains a culture that values diversity in all its forms, including race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, abilities/disabilities, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, nationality, and more. USF's Jesuit Catholic mission is grounded in its commitment to excellence in teaching, research, creative expression, and service; passion for social justice; and care for and engagement with our local and global communities.
