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 catalyze and facilitate faculty efforts, provide programming with input from faculty, and serve as a clearing house for information about faculty diversity.

"We learn the most from those we have the least in common with. Diversity that arises from ethnic, cultural, socioeconomic, professional, and experiential differences forms fertile ground for innovation. "

DeSimone and Ferrell, 2014, Science Translational Medicine

Building Future Faculty Information Session @ Hunt Library Conference Room 5234 (in the Faculty Lounge)
Oct 7 @ 3:00 pm – 3:45 pm

The purpose of this meeting is to discuss how departments can most effectively use the BFF program to scout out potential future faculty from underrepresented groups and bring interesting scholars to visit your department. At the meeting we will go over the aims of the BFF program, the process for selecting participants, and provide information about how some departments have used the program.

Please RSVP to Marcia Gumpertz at gumpertz@ncsu.edu.

Creating and Sustaining Effective Mentoring Relationships with Graduate Students

All graduate students and their faculty mentors/advisers are invited to this interactive workshop and discussion. Following an introduction by Maureen Grasso, Dean of the Graduate School, you will hear from a panel of faculty and graduate student pairs who have developed successful mentoring relationships.
