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

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion works closely with departments across campus to help in the hiring process, develop ways to reach out to more diverse populations in the search process, and create a supportive environment and interview process for all individuals. Search Advisors monitor searches and changes in employment and act as an Advisor to Faculty Search Committees to help with target recruitment efforts to secure a qualified diverse applicant pool that reflects the relevant labor market.

PSU has invested in a $700K incentive program for departments to engage in recruitment that not only yields a qualified diverse applicant pool but that results in the hiring of a faculty from historically underrepresented groups.

The President's Office also demonstrates its commitment to increasing the diversity of faculty by offering to pay a percentage of salary of any new faculty hired from an underrepresented group on campus.
