NSBE and ARLS 2019

The Academic and Research Leadership Symposium (ARLS) is co-located with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) Annual Convention. The ARL Symposium has two threads: (1) a faculty development thread, and (2) a research networking thread. The faculty development thread hosts workshops organized by members of the ARL network that strengthen and demystify fundamental components of academia. The researcher development and networking thread is critical to the goal of a self-sustaining ARL ecosystem.  Through funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), NSBE is able to fund up to 40 early-career faculty and post-doctoral scholars to attend ARLS (NSF Grant #EEC-1548319).
