A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :
SUNY Oswego’s Mentoring Core Group for Faculty and Staff of Color began ten years ago as an initiative developed by a labor/management (faculty and staff union and administration) sub-committee on Affirmative Action. The committee was determined to build a welcoming community of faculty and staff – a “core” group -- dedicated to informally mentoring all new faculty and staff by acting as human resources weeks before they arrived on campus; upon their arrival on campus and in a new city; and throughout their first three to four years as employees. The goal is to help new employees of color become acclimated to their new community, invite and participate with them at social events on and off campus, and check on their general well-being throughout the year. Today, eighteen (18) racially and ethnically diverse mentors – across academic disciplines and departments – serve in our Mentoring Core Group for Faculty and Staff of Color.
