Diversity at the University

Scholarship

The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity together with the University’s Faculty Diversity Officers work to implement the Faculty Diversity Initiative. The rationale of focusing on faculty is that a diverse faculty has the greatest potential and power to transform the campus climate by providing a rich variety of perspectives that will enable students to be global thinkers and actors, to respect diverse values, and to attain a competitive edge as distinguished leaders in their fields. The University draws on the talents of a diverse faculty to build, sustain and enhance institutional excellence and capability through leading-edge research, innovative approaches to teaching and learning, and scholarship that reflects a rich plurality of perspectives.
