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

Beloit College's Office of Academic Diversity and Inclusiveness (OADI) houses a number of different programs and initiatives focused directly on providing equitable access to higher education. The Student Excellence and Leadership (SEL) and the McNair Scholars Programs, both US Department of Education TRIO funded programs, use an asset-based model approach to work with students who are first-generation college, from low-income backgrounds, have a documented disability, and/or are domestic minorities. The Wisconsin Alliance for Minority Participation (WiscAMP) program works with minority students interested in science, technology, engineering and/or math (STEM). The Mellon Graduate School Exploratory Fellowship (GSEF) Program works with first-generation, low-income, underrepresented students in the humanities and social sciences that wish to attend graduate school.

Specifically, the McNair Scholars Program has the following goals:
1. To increase the number of low-income, first generation, and underrepresented minority students in PhD programs
2. To produce a new generation of scholars that reflects diversity in intellectual perspectives, life experiences, and cultures
3. To create a scholarly community of rigor, engagement and success
4. To serve as a model for the development of emerging socially progressive scholars
5. To foster spaces for interdisciplinary scholarship, mentorship and knowledge exchange.
