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.

This Network also hosts a dedicated Professional Development Committee for Diversity.

Additionally, the Recruitment and Retention of Diverse Employees Committee has enacted a campus wide commitment that diversity language be implemented in the recruitment and retention process which goes beyond mere compliance. Consequently, every new applicant to the university must address their commitment/contribution to Diversity at CSU. And for new recruits, an updated system of diversity training has been implemented which uses mandatory computer and face-to-face sessions. These models have been retroactively fit to every Dean and Cabinet Member at the University and is now being implemented in a top-down fashion such as all of their Leadership Teams are also receiving the training.

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.'"
