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

Faculty Hiring
In the search for faculty employment, a search committee must incorporate diversity within its membership. One member of the committee will be identified as the diversity liaison and work with Candi Miranda in the Office of the General Counsel to insure outreach to women and minority candidates. Diversity within this committee’s membership is important to the process. The committee should define a search plan prior to commencing the actual search. This plan includes the type and content of advertisements and where the advertisements will be placed. Additionally, it should include specific efforts to attract women and minority applicants. For example, reviewing the Minority & Women Doctoral Directory (www.mwdd.com/index.aspom/index.asp) and placing advertisements in periodicals such as The Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education (www.hispanicoutlook.com) and The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education (www.jbhe.com) as well as in/on professional association newsletters and websites is a means of communicating the opportunity to minority and women candidates. Although the entire committee is responsible for the search, it is recommended that one committee member take responsibility to insure outreach to women and minority candidates.

Ford Foundation Fellowship Program
Designed to increase the diversity of the nation's college and university faculties by increasing their ethnic and racial diversity, to maximize the educational benefits of diversity, and to increase the number of professors who can and will use diversity as a resource for enriching the education of all students.
