Visiting Scholar Requests

At the Penn Center for Minority Institutions, we have previously hosted visiting scholars during their sabbaticals so that we may aid them in their MSI-related research. Appointments are one semester long and require the visiting scholar to participate in CMSI’s programming and research. In return, visiting scholars are given access to research assistants, office space, a computer, mentorship, and professional development opportunities.

If you would like to request to be a visiting scholar with CMSI, please email Marybeth Gasman at Be sure to include your name, institutional affiliation, contact information, and an explanation of how your research is related to Minority Serving Insitutions.
