The Hispanic Center of Excellence's main objective is to increase its recruitment, training, and retention of junior and minority faculty through formal and informal faculty development activities, mentoring, and financial assistance. An ultimate goal of the HCOE is to increase promotion and tenure among Hispanic faculty.
The HCOE board is committed to helping junior and minority faculty through mentorship. Take the Mentorship Survey to let us know the areas you are seeking mentorship in and a board member will work with you to connect with the appropriate mentors.
