A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

Agnes Scott College participates in a number of programs to promote diversity within its faculty. The Mellon Fellowship Program, administered by Emory University, and in partnership with five colleges: Agnes Scott, Clark-Atlanta, Dillard, Morehouse, Spelman, gives Emory Ph.D. students a year of teaching experience at small colleges that are either HBCUs or that serve high numbers of underrepresented minority students (Agnes Scott). During the 2010-11 academic year, our Mellon Fellow was Moya Bailey, a Spelman graduate and Emory Ph.D. candidate in Women’s Studies. She taught two Women’s Studies courses for us, had an office, and was mentored by a member of the Women’s Studies department. Her salary was paid by the Mellon grant.

Agnes Scott College also participates in The Consortium for Faculty Diversity program, administered by DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. Agnes Scott College hosted a CFD Fellow in the English Department during the 2008-09 academic year. Our Fellow was Juanita Cabello, a Hispanic Ph.D. student in English at the University of Michigan. We provided an office for and mentored Juanita in teaching at liberal arts colleges; she taught one course in English each semester.
