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

Denison participates in the Consortium for Faculty Diversity (CFD) and hosts CFD scholars each year. (In 2009-10 there was one scholar on campus and there was one scholar for the 2010-2011 school year as well.) This program provides teaching experience and mentoring for post docs and for graduate students nearing the end of their degree who are from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in liberal arts college faculty.

Denison also participates in the Preparing Future Faculty program with Ohio State University. Seven faculty members mentor post docs and senior grad students from Ohio State each year. This program is open to individuals from all backgrounds.

The Gilpatrick Center encourages and helps students apply for different scholarships to encourage students from under-represented groups to pursue graduate degrees. These scholarships include McNair scholarships, SROP scholarships, and Ford Diversity scholarships.
