March 17, 2022

Congratulations to PhD candidate Jessica Lee, selected as one of UCLA’s two UC President’s Pre-Professoriate Fellows for 2022-23.

The University of California (UC)–Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSI) Doctoral Diversity Initiative (DDI) effort is designed to enhance faculty diversity and pathways to the professoriate for underrepresented UCLA graduate students who received their bachelor’s or master’s degree from a public or private California HSI. As part of the DDI, the UC President’s Pre-Professoriate Fellowship aims to foster students’ interest in and preparation for the professoriate. There is also additional professional development outreach and support for underrepresented PhD students with a goal to encourage and help equip them to consider careers in the professoriate.
