COE welcomes Sisters of the Academy to FSU for Research BootCamp



The FSU College of Education welcomed participants in the 2015 Sisters of the Academy Research BootCamp to campus on August 2 to engage in a week-long program designed to help doctoral students and junior scholars develop sound research agendas.

Sisters of the Academy (SOTA) is an organization that seeks to facilitate the success of Black women in the Academy by fostering research and scholarship collaboration. The biennial Research BootCamp (RBC) is designed specifically to assist advanced doctoral students in their dissertation research and junior faculty members in the development of a research agenda and preparation of manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals.



Organized by Dr. Tamara Bertrand Jones, assistant professor of higher education, the week-long event consists of a series of workshops led by senior scholars, statisticians, and theorists. Participants are also linked with a mentor to cultivate a mentoring relationship.

The bootcamp kicked off in the Stone Building on August 2 with an orientation and opening dinner. Meetings and lectures will be continuing throughout the week, concluding with a networking event on Thursday evening and a closing luncheon on Saturday.
