Does the institution administer and/or participate in a program or programs to help build a diverse faculty that meet the criteria for this credit?:

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

-SIU Carbondale participates in the Diversifying Faculty in Illinois (DFI) program which was established by the Illinois General Assembly in 2004. Through a highly competitive application process, the program awards funding to minority graduate students who are working toward an advanced degree (master’s or doctorate) leading to a faculty or staff position at an Illinois institution of higher education. The Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) oversees the application process and awards over 100 fellowships annually.

-The Underrepresented Tenure Track Faculty Program provides guidance and assistance to new minority faculty in navigating the ropes of the tenure track line.With the increase of a diverse society, particularly in the state of Illinois, it is imperative that our higher education institutions reflect this increase. Therefore, one goal of Southern Illinois University Carbondale is to continue to support the hiring of underrepresented faculty with a major focus on tenure, promotion, and retention. The mission of the Underrepresented Tenure Track (URTT) Program is to provide the assistance needed to accomplish that goal.
