The inaugural HBCU CS Faculty Workshop will be held at the 2017 National Society of Blacks in Computing (NSBC) Conference. The goal of the workshop is to mentor under-represented assistant- and associate-level faculty in Computer Science about the academic career ladder specifically at HBCUs. Ideal participants for this workshop includes HBCU faculty who is either tenure-track or associate professors looking to get promoted to full professors. The workshop will include panels of diverse senior faculty talking about the tenure and promotion process, launching a research program, professionalism, and a detailed session on proposal writing. Additionally, the workshop will conclude with a vendor fair for CS education tools, books and services. This workshop will be held concurrently with the general conference at the Twelve Atlantic Station Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. Funding to attend the conference will be offered for up to 30 HBCU faculty members currently teaching in CS Departments from the NSF BPC-A: Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Sciences (iAAMCS) grant award (#1303156).
