The year 2001 marked a milestone for the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) Doctoral Scholars Program, the graduation of the 100th graduate. The Doctoral Scholars Program was created in 1993 to address the national shortage of minority faculty. The program model provides support, encouragement, and preparation to help scholars who have been admitted to doctoral programs in completing their study and becoming successful faculty members. The graduates highlighted in this booklet testify to the program's growth and success. Key accomplishments include 100 program graduates and more than 200 scholars progressing toward degrees. There has been a 90% retention and graduation rate for the program's scholars, with a 70% placement rate for graduates on campuses as faculty, administrators, or postdoctoral researchers. The booklet lists the first 100 graduates by state and presents profiles of a graduate from each state in the SREB area and the program's 100th graduate. (SLD)
