The Tuskegee Alliance to Forge Pathways to Academic Careers in STEM (T-PAC) is a collaborative effort among three doctoral granting institutions in the state of Alabama consisting of two Historically Black Universities, Tuskegee University (TU), and Alabama State University (ASU); a Traditionally White Institution, Auburn University (AU); and two supporting partners, AU’s Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning and AU’s Miller Writing Center. The focus of T-PAC is to recruit 18 first year U.S. citizen underrepresented minority (URM) doctoral students (T-PAC Scholars) at the three T-PAC Alliance institutions and assist them in their preparation through a promising novel model for STEM doctoral education. T-PAC also encourages its Scholars to consider tenure track faculty careers at American Colleges and Universities.
