A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :
According to the Academic Personnel Affirmative Action Program, Annual Review and Update (2009), UCSD uses a comprehensive planning framework called “Charting the Course” to aid in the implementation of different program’s efforts to increase the diversity of higher education faculty. One of these programs is the UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. While it is open to all qualified candidates, this UC program encourages outstanding women and minority Ph.D. recipients to pursue academic careers at UC. Preferred candidates are those whose research emphasizes issues such as diversity, multiculturalism, and communities underserved by traditional academic research (as may be the case in disciplines within the humanities, arts, social sciences, and professions), or candidates who have a demonstrated record of mentoring or outreach activities, or who intend to promote access and opportunity in higher education through mentoring or outreach activities, which may be more pertinent to candidates in the disciplines of math, engineering, life sciences, and physical sciences.
