Diversifying Faculty and Staff

Metropolitan State University of Denver
National data indicates that the percentage of full-time faculty has not changed dramatically over the years except for Asian Americans. A snapshot of data from 1993, 2003, and 2015 demonstrates that Native American faculty have grown from 0% in 1993 to 1% in 2003 and 2015; Hispanic faculty have grown from 3% in 1993 to 4% in 2003 and 2015; African American faculty have grown from 5% in 1993 and 2003 to 6% in 2015; and Asian American faculty have grown from 5% in 1993 to 7% in 2003 and 10 % in 2015. We can – and must – do better.

The "tool" is actually a series of action steps designed to achieve an excellent and inclusive faculty: (1) recruitment, (2) preparing the search committee, (3) writing the right job ad, (4) supporting faculty through the tenure process, and (5) providing support for success throughout a person’s career.
