Faculty Diversity

Our vision is to increase faculty diversity and promote a hospitable climate that supports the success of all faculty at NC State

We promote a comprehensive approach to faculty diversity and inclusion, engaging and coordinating with faculty throughout the university with working groups, committees, and core programming.

“The more that you live between clusters, the more exposed you’ll be to different ideas. As psychologist Scott Berkun has argued, all new ideas are combinations of old ideas. So if you gather seeds of the ‘old’ ideas of diverse groups of people, you can make a super-productive soil for your own insights.” — Drake Baer as seen in the 12/28/2014 N&O

Workshop to Enhance Faculty Diversity @ Faculty Conference Room 2nd Floor DH Hill Library
Jun 1 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

This workshop will discuss measures that department heads or deans can take when appointing a search committee and charging the search committee. The workshop will allow time for tailoring these measures to your department needs and developing discipline-specific tools for identifying diverse applicants. These measures have been shown to increase the diversity of the applicant pool and the list of finalists.This workshop is for those in a position of appointing a faculty search committee.
