Does the institution administer and/or participate in a program or programs to help build a diverse faculty that meet the criteria for this credit?:

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

-The Riley Scholars-in-Residence Program reflects the conviction that a strong minority presence on the faculty of a liberal arts college benefits the entire community. Scholars of African, Asian, Hispanic, and Native American ethnic identity afford the College a diversity of experience and perspective otherwise difficult to attain. By their presence as well as their knowledge, these scholars help to enlarge the world of their students and colleagues.
Academic departments collaborate with the Dean and the President to identify and hire promising Riley Scholars-in-Residence candidates to provide minority scholars with dissertation and post-doctoral fellowships and to encourage them to pursue careers in undergraduate teaching. Riley Scholars teach two or three courses per year, receive funds to support research and interact regularly with the Colorado College community. Currently, there are four Riley Scholar positions available annually.

-CC recently hired a talent acquisition manager to ensure that the institution does all it can to hire and retain a highly talented, diverse staff and faculty.
