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

1) We participate in the Preparing Future Faculty program at OSU, which pairs OSU Ph.D. students with Wooster faculty in a mentoring relationship. PFF is not solely for minority students/faculty, though it is a focus.

2) We current have an $600,00 NSF STEM grant that provides scholarships to financially needy students interested in Science. We hope with this program to attract minority students.

3) We have a $200,000 grant from the Clare Boothe Luce foundation to provide research training for women in the sciences, particularly minority women, to encourage them to continue in science.

4) We have applied for a Merck Post-doctoral position (sponsored by the NAACP) for a STEM post-doc faculty member.

5) We are a member of the Consortium for Faculty Diversity, which places minority faculty in post-doc positions. We have a times brought in a post-doc from this program (two of our faculty currently came to us from this program). We also use the registry to recruit minority faculty.
