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

The Future Faculty Career Exploration Program is one of a series of recruitment strategies designed to fuel the future pipeline of RIT faculty.

Program Objectives:

1. Build the future faculty pipeline by establishing significant meaningful relationships with prospects from underrepresented and underserved populations at RIT.

2. Lay the foundation for opening up future networks with other universities.

3. Strategically prepare for pending human resource needs to cover future curriculum development and course offerings.

4. Proactively seize employment opportunities, where appropriate prospects are found, that can contribute to the University's continuing commitment to cultural diversity.

5. Serve as a bridge to assist in transition from graduate school student to a faculty member.

6. Assist in preparing future faculty for a career in the Institute.

Also, RIT's Faculty Search Guidelines address the importance of diversity and provides support to committee members and others involved in the faculty search process. Search Committees are required to conduct targeted outreach which includes that of underrepresented groups.
Committees are provided a resource guide which contains a listing of minority serving institutions, multicultural organizations and student groups, as well as direct contacts in varying fields which they can use to aid with their outreach. This information is collected on the Faculty Recruitment Plan Form, which is reviewed by the Office of Faculty Recruitment and Retention (OFRR) and approved by the college dean.
