UCSC faculty will mentor new Ph.D. recipients

Program provides training and support

Beginning July 1, several UCSC faculty members will become mentors to new UCSC Faculty Fellows. The fellows program will provide new UC Ph.D. recipients with training and support, as they pursue their research and provide instruction that will help the campus accommodate increasing numbers of undergraduates.

As mentors, established faculty will help seven fellows develop undergraduate courses, hone their instructional skills, and conduct research.

The new UCSC Faculty Fellows, with the names of participating faculty mentors, are:

• Monique Balbuena (Literature): Balbuena will receive her Ph.D. this June from UC Berkeley and will work with Professors Murray Baumgarten and Norma Klahn.

• Julie Figueroa (Latin American and Latino Studies): Figueroa received her Ph.D. from UC Berkeley and will work with Professor Aida Hurtado.
