Key Insights and Models for Change
Diversifying colleges is a complex undertaking that requires taking into account history, structural inequity, and institutional will. But diversifying higher education can’t be done without a complete understanding of the barriers that have historically inhibited progress; institutional leaders must learn from that history in order to consider new approaches to equity and inclusion.
Colleges have made promises about diversity before — typically, after facing student protests and public outrage over racism — and haven’t fulfilled them.
This report examines key questions surrounding the lack of racial diversity in the academic workforce, shares key insights from campus leaders who have made changes to the status quo, and showcases more than a dozen institutions that have successfully diversified some aspect of their campuses, from the faculty to the boardroom. Learn what it takes to bring more diversity to campuses and how to tackle the structural barriers that impede the progress of people of color.
You'll get insight into:
- Why diversity efforts often fail.
- How infrastructure derails the advancement of people of color.
- How colleges should confront structural racism.
- Practical and sustainable steps to a diverse faculty.
