The UTA team is currently working with the newly created center, CRTLE, and the Vice Provost for Faculty affairs. The aim is to work with these units to develop a training course for all newly hired faculty. It is hoped that this program will exist beyond the life of the grant, as it will become part of a sustainable structure. The team is also working to establish official URM doctoral student chapters in the colleges of Engineering and Science. Once the chapters are established and active, newly admitted doctoral students will be invited to join and participate in the activities of each chapter, thereby creating student-centric safe spaces and networks for URM graduate students. In addition, the UTA team plans to offer two workshops, led by members of its CIRTL Steering Committee, focused on preparing URM doctoral students for careers in the academy.
