ASHA’s 1999 Priority 3 is to address the shortage of teacher/scholars qualified to fill faculty positions in communication sciences and disorders programs in the nation’s institutions of higher education. One strategy aimed at beginning to replenish faculty ranks is the recently initiated Research in Higher Education Mentoring Program. Through this program, select undergraduate and master’s students who profess interest in eventual careers in research and higher education have the opportunity to sample what that life might be like by visiting the workplaces of scholars employed in such settings. Each student who applied for this short-term mentoring program was responsible for finding a mentor and together developing a plan that would introduce the student to the mentor’s ongoing research activities. Applications were judged by a panel of reviewers consisting of representatives from the Academic Affairs Board, Christopher Halpin; the Research and Scientific Affairs Committee, Ingrid Blood; ASHA Working Group on Mentoring, Michelle Walker; and ASHA Vice President for Academic Affairs Noma Anderson and myself. In heading up this program, Noma and I are grateful for the significant assistance provide by National Office staff Debra Busacco, director of Academic Affairs, and Vic Gladstone, chief staff officer for Audiology.
