The transition from a research institution like Penn to a smaller, teaching-centric one can be stark. Working as a professor at a Minority Serving Institution (MSI) can include additional adjustments, including adopting culturally competent teaching practices.

Over breakfast, Gretta Blackwell (Ph.D. '16) and Derek Blackwell (Ph.D. '14) will share their experiences as professors at Prairie View A&M, one of the 107 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in the U.S.

The event will also include information about a forthcoming teaching fellowship at Prairie View for ASC doctoral candidates.
