On October 10 and 11, 2018, NYU Steinhardt hosted the second annual Faculty First-Look Scholars program – a program designed to provide professional development opportunities for current doctoral/terminal degree students from historically underrepresented groups who are preparing for faculty or related scholarly careers. Thirty-one Ph.d. candidates, Faculty First-Look Scholars, from across the country participated in the first two-day session of the program (the next session scheduled for two days in March 2019) along with a guest journalist LaMont Jones from Diverse Issues in Higher Education, who covered the program and published this story. Look out for the full feature article in November issue of Diverse Issues in Higher Education.
