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

Purdue has been recent recipient of the NSF Advance grant. The ADVANCE grants assist university with respect to increasing the presence of women in the STEM disciplines. The focus of our grant was to increase the number of women and specifically the number of URM women who are members of the STEM faculty. Institutional practices which have emerged since the beginning of the grant include the following:
Hiring and Bias Workshops – open to all faculty members participating in searches
Future Purdue Hiring Incentive Funds – funding which can be sought from the provost office as a way to leverage hiring of underrepresented faculty (women and underrepresented minorities)
Participant in Compact for Faculty Diversity – a program which features the largest gathering of URM Ph.D. students who are interested in going into the professoriate. We recruit annually at this event.
We have developed a Post-Doctoral program which is focused on increasing the number of URM women in the STEM area
We have developed mentoring workshops for chairs and department heads. Several areas have developed mentoring programs.
LSAMP – this NSF sponsored program provides research opportunities and financial support to URM students to prepare them to move on to the advanced degrees in STEM areas.
AGEP – this NSF program supports URM doctoral students who are interested in moving into the professoriate.
