Abstract: Diversifying the professoriate is of great concern to the field of higher education. Yet, there is a dearth of literature studying the efficacy of programs designed to support these efforts. This project details findings from a social design experiment of the PhD Preparation Summit (PPS), a one-day pilot workshop aimed at supporting racially minoritized post-baccalaureates in Southern California. Using analyses of survey and observation data, we find that culturally affirming and asset-based frames are effective design components for programs targeted to People of Color. We conclude by sharing implications for the design of future PhD preparation programs for People of Color.
