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

Since 2000, the University has used the Multicultural Staff & Faculty Network. The mission of this organization is to transform the campus climate and culture in order to foster the empowerment of all CSU employees. This transformation occurs through the recruitment, retention and development of employees, collaboration with the community to work towards positive change, expansion of social and networking opportunities, and the recognition and rewarding of service. In addition the organization serves to assure the accomplishment of Colorado State University Strategic Diversity Goals.

Additionally, specific departments may integrate diversity in the faculty as part of their diversity plans. For example, the Extension department made the following commitment in their Diversity Plan for 2009-2012; "Extension will recruit and hire administrative professionals from underrepresented groups to achieve 'meaningful representation.'"
