Not all students have access to guidance on how to navigate the unique world of academia. Importantly, equity and diversity in academia are hurt by this uneven playing field. To play a small role in addressing this problem, I am providing the following documents to share my perspective about academic research.
If there are other topics you are interested in, or other mechanisms you think would be useful to disseminate this content, e-mail me your idea! I will continue developing these documents, and so would appreciate your feedback on what is most effective. I am particularly interested in assisting students who must overcome systemic inequalities and racism in order to advance and feel welcome in their academic institutions. Please reach out if I can be of assistance.
