Mentor and Co-Founder: Dr. Renetta Garrison Tull
Renetta Tull is Associate Vice Provost for Graduate Student Development and Postdoctoral Affairs (formerly Assistant Dean) at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC: An Honors University in Maryland.) She is also the Founding Director of PROMISE: Maryland’s Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP), a program of the National Science Foundation.
Renetta Tull works with both faculty and students. She is trained as an engineer and speech scientist, but as an Assistant Dean, she has been a speaker and participant of programs of other disciplines such as the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Maryland Baltimore, La Escuela de Asuntos Ambientales (The School of Environmental Sciences) at Universidad Metropolitana in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and the American Institute of Mathematics in Palo Alto, California. Dr. Tull’s greatest joys come when she is able to help students to achieve their goals and dreams.
Renetta Tull is a former member of the board of the Northeastern Association of Graduate Schools. She is a regular speaker at universities (e.g., MIT and Cornell), and at conferences such as the National Society of Black Engineers and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. She takes appointments at UMBC and will meet with as many students as possible at conferences and throughout her travels as she speaks for the GEM GRADLab “Graduate School Tour.”
