The College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences is launching CUSP: Career Mentoring of Underrepresented STEM Students for the Professoriate, a pilot project funded by the UC-HSI Doctoral Diversity Initiative (UC-HSI DDI).   

We are currently recruiting STEM faculty (CNAS, BCOE, SOM, and CHASS) to provide career mentoring to underrepresented students who are seeking careers as professors. Faculty mentor responsibilities include: committing to a year-long program of one-on-one career mentoring, helping a student develop an Individual Development Plan (IDP), and attending/presenting in a professional development seminar series in Spring 2021. 

Ideal faculty mentors are those who have a passion for one-on-one mentoring. Experience mentoring underrepresented students is beneficial, but not required. Faculty mentors will receive a research stipend of $1250 for participating in the program. CUSP Mentor applications are open from November 1st to December 1st, 2020.   

Please visit the CUSP website or contact laura.mcgeehan@ucr.edu for more information about the program. We hope you will consider participating to help a student achieve their career goals.
