Call for proposals for visiting minority artists/scholars
The Visiting Minority Scholar/Artist in Residence Program provides the opportunity to build relationships with minority scholars and artists, and can serve as a wonderful recruiting opportunity for departments or units. Steven Tallant, interim provost and vice chancellor for Academic Affairs, invites proposals to bring visiting minority scholars/artists to UW-Eau Claire, with funding provided by his office.
Scholars/artists should be representative of those racial/ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in the U.S. workforce, and must be U.S. citizens or have permanent residency status. Candidates also must possess a social security card.
Proposals may be submitted throughout the academic year. Priority consideration will be given to those proposals received by Dec. 1. More information is available online or by contacting Tallant at firstname.lastname@example.org.
