Recruiting and Retaining Diverse Faculty
Venue: Online Webcast
|Event Date/Time: Jan 24, 2012|
While the diversity of undergraduate student populations is steadily increasing, faculty diversity continues to lag, especially in fields such as engineering and science. Research indicates a diverse faculty directly contributes to educational quality and excellence; better prepares students to live and work in an increasingly global, pluralistic society; and exposes students to a broader range of scholarly perspectives.
Join us online as we explore best practices for recruiting and retaining diverse faculty, such as creating the right search committee, writing position announcements, engaging women and faculty of color, and developing faculty mentorship programs. We will focus on the workplace expectations and desires of the newest generation of faculty/scholars, including how women and faculty of color are impacting higher education.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Diversity officers, senior academic administrators, faculty, and any institution looking to improve upon its practice for recruiting and retaining its women and faculty of color are encouraged to participate in this program.
