Um cid agenda
UM CID Agenda

  • Broadening professional development

    • for students seeking academic careers

    • for students seeking industrial careers

  • Supporting diverse workforce

    • for women in academic careers

    • in general, for underrepresented groups

  • Diversify post-baccalaureate options

Csie broadening scholarship
CSIE: Broadening Scholarship

  • Chemical Sciences at the Interface of Education

    • What: Future faculty development spanning undergraduate to post-doctoral students (i.e., develop stewardship in the ‘usual’ way: sustained education leads to independence)

    • How:Adds “training grant” supplement for those PhD students interested in academia

    • Why: Empowering student control & choice, and address issue of professional competency for future faculty members: as teacher, but also as mentor, advisor, author, grantee, department and university citizen in different settings…

Csie 1998 present
CSIE: 1998 - present

  • Evolved from a faculty member’s scholarly program - extension of opportunities via GAANN

  • Earliest discussions regarding a CSIE PhD program with Carnegie Scholars

  • Discussed by UM Chem Graduate Committee

    • Critics: dilution of effort, time, not needed, distraction

    • Supporters: funding, recruitment, support, motivation, more complete attitude towards education

  • Key: student ownership & choice

  • Key: incremental growth

  • Key: open discussion

Csie next steps retreat 6 13 03
CSIE: next steps (retreat - 6/13/03)

  • Invent better upper level engagement

  • Invent infrastructure for an “instructional research and development” group within the department - articulation, mentorship, scholarly growth

  • Invent post-BS & post-PhD support network

  • Possibly provide guidance for an expansion project (multidisciplinary & international)


  • NSF: increase representation and success of women in academic careers

    • Reduce accumulation of disadvantage

    • Department and faculty issues trickle down

      • Policy: recruitment, retention, P&T

      • Climate: survey faculty, students, staff

    • Assess, evaluate, & act: strategic, public

    • Overlap with CSIE in general

      • Joint program activities (seminars, brown-bag)

      • CID, Woodrow Wilson, other higher educational arenas

Moving the graduate program outside the phd box
Moving the Graduate Program Outside the [PhD] Box

  • Dual mentor post-doctoral program for future faculty

  • Cooperative site experiences (national & international--e.g., IGERT)

  • Combined PhD degrees (Chemistry & Education; MACRO)

  • Establish BS/MS & MS/X degrees
