Every year the student population across college campuses grows more diverse while the faculty ranks remain overwhelmingly white. Diverse: Issues in Higher Education Executive Editor, David Pluviose joins EAB’s Rachel Tanner to examine the problem 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, Mr. Pluviose also explores the business case for inclusive hiring and retention practices. He also 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.
