Recruitment and Retention of Diverse Faculty
Amidst the chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent Black Lives Matter movement bringing attention to the truth about injustices and inequality, many colleges and universities are working hard to achieve faculty diversity goals. But how? In this episode your host, David Pluviose, talks about proven strategies that work and tips for side stepping the challenges that inevitably arise.

David breaks down some of the numbers behind this increasingly popular model and addresses many other ways that professionals are fostering inclusivity for today’s college campus.
