Faculty Diversity

Under Construction

The Office of Diversity and Community Engagement (ODCE) and the Department of Faculty Diversity provides a range of resources, training and support for deans, department chairs and individual faculty members in the areas of faculty diversity. ODCE works with deans, chairs and search committees to improve recruitment and retention practices and to increase diversity in faculty hiring. It provides guidance to the academic leadership and to individual faculty members on mentoring and the tenure and promotion processes. In collaboration with the Faculty Senate, the Faculty Mentoring Program, and the Center for Excellence in Teaching the ODCE offers a variety of professional development programming for faculty. The office actively collaborates with Academic Affairs and other offices on campus in its efforts to support the success of all faculty.
