The TRANSFORM program was designed by and for faculty from groups historically under-represented in science and medicine (designated URM), including those identifying as Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or other Pacific Islanders. Our goal is to ensure that URM faculty at the associate professor level acquire the skills and experiences needed to advance successfully to more senior faculty and leadership positions that allow them to thrive in their academic careers. This innovative program:

  • Combines culturally responsive longitudinal leadership training, mentoring, and coaching tailored to mid-career faculty.
  • Fosters a network of support, encouragement, and peer-peer learning among URM faculty.

  • Unites the expertise and educational modalities of five institutions committed to the success of URM faculty.
  • Positions URM faculty to foster a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment at their own academic institution and beyond.
  • Will start October 2022 and end in October 2023. Timeline to come.
  • Support would be provided for Transform program costs.
