How to Improve Faculty Diversity Through Inclusive Hiring and Retention Practices


 

Every year the student population across college campuses grows more diverse while the faculty ranks remain overwhelmingly white. In this feature episode Diverse host David Pluviose, joins EAB’s podcast host, Rachel Tanner, to examine the issue and offer concrete steps university leaders can take to change things for the better.

While achieving diversity in faculty hiring has always been the morally right thing to do, David also explores the business case for inclusive hiring and retention practices. He explains why current hiring freezes do not have to be an impediment to progress—and shares the importance of supporting students of color and preparing them for careers in higher education.
