Maryland's AGEP PROMISE Academy Alliance (APAA) is developing a state system model to increase faculty diversity in the biomedical sciences through enhanced hiring practices, collaborative professional development opportunities, and creation of conversion processes to transition postdocs into tenure track positions. Alliance partners within the University System of Maryland include comprehensive universities, research universities and professional schools. Partnership and collaboration with system administration has been essential. The program aims to expand beyond biomedical sciences, beyond alliance institutions, and partner with other state systems interested in replication for an NSF INCLUDES proposal.
