Diversity in the Global Academy: Review, Promotion and Tenure
Best Practices to Achieve an Inclusive and Diverse Faculty
This paper draws upon contemporary research—and interviews with current academic affairs leaders—to lay out a series of concrete steps that global universities are taking to end unequal patterns of academic advancement.
The paper takes us beyond the oft-cited “pipeline problem” of recruitment—and offers practical choices you can make to create a more equitable workplace for all academics at your institution.
You’ll learn about:
- What forms of institutional engagement you can offer the academy around inclusion and diversity
- How academic workload expectations and tenure/promotion requirements are being re-evaluated from a lens of under-representation
- What influence data and technology are having on academy diversity at global universities
Only by intentionally addressing both structural and cultural factors can universities reverse the long-entrenched underrepresentation among the professoriate. Download the paper!
