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:

Hope has partnered with Howard University and the University of Texas at El Paso as a participant in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Postdoctoral Program for Preparing Future Faculty. This program supports two-year positions at Hope for recent doctoral graduates who are members of underrepresented groups in the natural sciences or psychology. These positions allow recent graduates to teach at an undergraduate level, with an active faculty member, and gain research experience by working on current research projects with active faculty.

As part of Hope's Strategic Plan-Goal 4 Objective 2: Recruitment, retention and vendor strategies will employ best practices in developing a diverse and inclusive community.
KPI 1: Near Term. Hiring managers will be trained and equipped to recruit diverse applicant pools.
KPI 2: Longer Term. Five-year average rates of retention, promotion, advancement, and job-satisfaction among underrepresented faculty and staff groups will be consistent with those of the majority.
KPI 5: Longer Term. The percentages of domestic minority and international staff and faculty will increase annually.
