Increase Faculty Diversity and Inclusivity on Campus
While the student body of college campuses has diversified over the last decades, the demographics of the faculty have largely remained unchanged. And even in fields which have diversified, candidates from historically underrepresented groups (URG) are less likely to hold leadership positions and higher ranks. Fostering a truly inclusive culture starts with departments and hiring committees. They must focus not just on increasing diversity of the current faculty but also on building a pipeline of diverse graduate students and postdocs.
