The CEC implements the Diversity Program Consortium (DPC)’s vision and design of activities, and is responsible for the longitudinal, consortium-wide evaluation of the training and mentoring interventions that BUILD and NRMN awardees develop and put into practice. In addition, the CEC facilitates ongoing, consortium-wide discussions of interventions, progress, outcomes and lessons learned, and serves as the focal point for disseminating effective approaches to the broader research training and mentoring communities. Dissemination of the outcomes of this complex, multifaceted experiment have the potential to enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce, and the consortium’s research findings will have implications for expanding recruitment, training and mentoring of diverse groups nationwide.
In FY 2014, the CEC award was issued to investigators at the University of California, Los Angeles. Led by Dr. Keith Norris, Dr. Teresa Seeman, and Dr. Steven Wallace, it has three distinct core activities:
The second, and final 5-year phase of the CEC began in FY2019. After a limited competition, the CEC was renewed, which will allow for continuity in the evaluation and data collection process. During Phase II, the CEC will maintain their three original Cores, with the addition of a Communications and Dissemination Core. This core will create an infrastructure to develop and refine communications (for both internal DPC and external audiences) and will work with other DPC awardees to amplify dissemination of the consortium’s research and evaluation findings. Additionally, they will lead consortium efforts to increase the visibility of the evidence informed training and mentoring practices, modules and other DPC products.
The CEC’s role in the DPC includes:
