Rising Star Program to Increase Faculty Diversity

The UNC SOM’s Rising Star Program was started to increase diversity among faculty members in the basic sciences, with a specific focus on groups historically minoritized in the basic sciences. This program provides training to postdoctoral fellows from underrepresented groups to help them excel during the faculty interview process by exposing admitted fellows to the same components that they will experience during the faculty job interview process.
