Three TCU Faculty to Participate in Career Diversity for Historians Faculty Institutes

Three faculty members in TCU’s Department of History (Jodi Campbell, department chair; Rebecca Sharpless; and Peter Worthing) will participate in the American Historical Association’s 2017-2018 Career Diversity for Historians Faculty Institutes. Supported by the Mellon Foundation, the AHA’s Career Diversity for Historians initiative is working to better prepare graduate students and early-career historians for a range of career options, in and outside of the academy.

During the pilot phase of Career Diversity, the AHA and pilot institutions developed insights that now lay the foundation for a truly national program aimed at enriching career preparation for graduate students. Beginning this June, faculty from 36 Ph.D.-granting departments will meet at a series of Faculty Institutes to discuss emerging models for integrating Career Diversity into doctoral education and learn about resources that can help departments lay the groundwork for changes in graduate curriculum and programming.
