Many graduate schools and postdoctoral programs are not very satisfied with their professional development programming. Perhaps, like them, you've said one of the following about your school's efforts:
Challenge: NYU aimed to create a strong and cohesive Professional Development program design in time to submit a proposal to the Mellon Foundation. Additionally, they wanted to effect a culture shift among humanities faculty members whereby they themselves start to see non-academic employment as a likely and legitimate career path for doctoral students.
Approach: BTTT designed core professional development components to cultivate humanities PhD students for applied careers. Recommended roles for humanities faculty and alumni to contribute to student professional development.
Result: Won $1.5M multi-year Mellon Foundation grant.
Timeframe: October - November 2018 (4 weeks)
Approach: BTTT created a foundational model to organize existing programming. Guided campus partners to develop a strategic plan and create a joint curriculum with three original programs.
Timeframe: March - May 2019 (3 months)
