ADEA Chapter Toolkit for Students, Residents and Fellows

ADEA encourages student members to support and promote ADEA’s mission at their local institutions through ADEA Chapters for Students, Residents and Fellows (ADEA Chapters). 

ADEA Chapters for Students, Residents and Fellows:  

  • Promote knowledge of and interest in academic careers.
  • Advance ADEA’s mission, strategic directions, key priorities and initiatives.
  • Promote membership in ADEA.
  • Prepare students, residents and fellows for local and national leadership positions.   

In 2016, the ADEA Board of Directors approved a set of 10 strategic initiatives which includes an initiative to encourage and expand establishment of ADEA Student Chapters with an emphasis on increasing interest in academic careers.

The ADEA Chapter Toolkit for Students, Residents and Fellows includes information and resources to guide chapter creation, organization, fundraising, community outreach and events to introduce students, residents and fellows to academic dental careers. 

The Toolkit is a dynamic resource to help ADEA chapters cultivate interest in academic dental careers now and in the future. Comments and suggestions regarding Toolkit contents and other chapter resources may be sent to Sonja Harrison, ADEA Staff Liaison to the Council of Students, Residents and Fellows, at harrisons@adea.org
