Rutgers GSE CMSI

Become a Visiting Scholar

At the Rutgers Center for Minority Institutions, we welcome those interested in being Visiting Scholars so that we may aid them in their MSI-related research. Appointments require the Visiting Scholar to participate in CMSI’s programming and research with concrete deliverables. In return, Visiting Scholars are given access to access to mentoring, professional development, publishing and presentation opportunities, and national exposure for their work. This is a virtual program.

  • Must be interested in MSI-related oriented research.
  • Must be able to contribute to the research and programming of the CMSI with concrete deliverables. 

Deliverables might include (but are not limited to): 

  • Conducting a podcast interview for the Varying Viewpoints podcast series

  • Initiating a research project
  • Participating in a webinar/program
  • Conceptualizing and/or moderating a webinar/program
