The PhD Project Annual Meeting saw the capping of 12 of its new PhD Project professors. The focus of The PhD Project is to increase diversity in business school faculty and since 1994, when The PhD Project was launched, the number of minority faculty members has quintupled. Dr. Cinco Nicole Fuller became the 1,470th minority business school professor.

Moving in an additional direction, The PhD Project has found that there are fewer than 40 African American, Hispanic American and Native American deans of non-historically black universities’ business schools in the US. Project AHEAD (Achieving Higher Education Administration Diversity) has been developed by The PhD Project to encourage tenured minority faculty to explore positions in administration, as it provides them with resources, support and mentors.

Over 300 universities are participating in The PhD Project. NASBA is a sponsor of The PhD Project.
