White Paper: Challenges to Inclusion and Diversity in Faculty Hiring—Research and Best Practices.

What’s keeping colleges and universities from making real progress on faculty diversity?

Today’s academic institutions almost universally affirm the importance of a diverse faculty body—frequently citing a wealth of research on the benefits of organizational diversity at all levels. But although U.S. academic institutions have been making vocal commitments to increase representation and inclusion for several decades now, change among faculty has lagged far behind that among the student body. Where are they going wrong?

In this free white paper, we survey the landscape of faculty demographic statistics, official diversity efforts, and factors that influence an institution’s ability to follow through specifically on diversity and representation in recruitment of new faculty members. And we make the case for some concrete, actionable factors tied to the logistics of tracking the applicant pool.
