The Duke University Center of Exemplary Mentoring (UCEM) welcomed its inaugural cohort of Sloan Scholars to campus on July 9. The Scholars are participating in the Early Start Research Immersion Program, a five-week program that helps them get a head start on integrating into their departments and the Duke community.
The Duke UCEM is a new initiative led by The Graduate School and funded by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and by the Duke Office of the Provost. The UCEM works to increase the number of Ph.D. holders from underrepresented minorities in physical sciences and engineering.
