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

Dalhousie launched the Dalhousie Diversity Faculty Awards in 2011 - a program to increase representation of minority groups among professors and to provide role models across all Faculties. This Award is intended to act as an incentive for faculty hiring from the three under-represented groups by paying up to half of salary for three to five years, a maximum of $50,000 a year. Starting this fall, the program will be in place for 10 years, with a maximum of five awards in place at a time.
