Faculty diversity has been slow to change despite decades of calls from student activists and BIPOC faculty themselves. Recently, the Black Lives Matter movement has called particular attention to the low numbers of BIPOC faculty and its impact or lack thereof on recruitment and retention. Not only do faculty demographics lag behind the diversity of our campuses and communities, but students also miss the benefits of learning from faculty with a diverse range of backgrounds.

But as more colleges and universities set more aggressive diversity goals, competition for the best faculty candidates continues to intensify. As a result, academic leaders must take immediate action to increase the diversity of their candidate pool for faculty searches with changes to job ad language, candidate-facing websites, and interviewing processes. At the same time, colleges should also consider how to make themselves attractive places to work with a focus on retention as well. These practices include setting up candidates and new hires with mentors who can give thoughtful advice about life at the institution and in the local community.


During this event, we will cover a broad overview of best practices in BIPOC Faculty Retention and explore a candidate centric model of hiring.
