Sr. Recycling & Waste Minimization Specialist
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:
Diversity of ideas makes this institution, and the knowledge we create through research and disseminate through teaching, better and more vigorous. Diversity of ideas derives from unique individuals, including men and women with various racial-ethnic backgrounds, languages, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, mental and physical disabilities, national and geographical origins, socio-economic classes, and political views.
Therefore, in order to make this institution better and more academically vigorous, men and women with various racial-ethnic backgrounds, languages, religious beliefs, sexual orientations, mental and physical disabilities, national and geographical origins, socio-economic classes, and political views need to be actively sought through the faculty hiring process.
The Chancellor’s Diversity Initiative (CDI) is dedicated to enhancing institutional diversity through offering workshops and seminars and forming collaborative partnerships all over campus. The CDI, as well as the Equity office, offer a variety of hiring and recruitment guidelines designed to increase and improve faculty diversity as stated in the MU Diversity mission statement. The CDI actively and aggressively seeks to improve the university’s commitment to diversity in higher education faculty.
In addition, the campus hosts various events such as the MizzouDiversity Summit which aids in education of the importance of diversity within the faculty at Mizzou. We also offer an opportunity for faculty to present their diversity related research at our Diversity in Action brown-bag seminar series.
