Abstract

This panel presentation focuses on a cohort of Master's level, African American graduate students, and their pursuit of mentorship and scholarship development to prepare for doctoral level study in the "academy". Using oral-story telling, narrative scholarship, and problem-posing audience-based participation, the panel will articulate what fostered their interests in pursuing doctoral study; how they articulated their needs as academics and secured university-level support; how they began to create a research-agenda. In addition, panel members will discuss how they undertook personal agency and activism in forming an organization to support their academic needs. Presented here are strategies the panel believes are essential for institutions to adopt to promote the academic development of emergent Black educators and scholars.
