The office for Faculty Development & Diversity was created in 2015 in order to increase faculty diversity and support an inclusive climate in Arts and Sciences. The office is involved with a number of programmatic efforts that are aimed at recruiting, advancing and retaining a more diverse tenured and tenure-track faculty.
- Increase the representation of women and racial/ethnic minorities among the tenured and tenure-track faculty within Arts & Sciences
- Support the advancement of all faculty, with a particular focus on junior faculty, including women and minorities.
- Enable a more welcoming, supportive and inclusive climate for all faculty within Arts & Sciences and in particular at the department level.
