A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :
Pace University and the Lienhard School of Nursing have a strong commitment to a diverse faculty that reflects our equally diverse student body. Because of this commitment, the school had created a “Grow our Own” program for a total of six alumni/ae that will be supported to attend a doctoral program in nursing with the intent to become LSN faculty members upon completion of the degree. This program is in its second year. During this period, participants will teach in the School a minimum of 50%; additional workload can be accommodated if desired. The faculty who are chosen will receive tuition expenses up to $25,000 for three years and $10,000 for one year and a laptop computer.
