Increase Faculty Diversity

Increasing faculty diversity has two primary purposes: 1) ensuring Dartmouth has a full spectrum of creative minds engaged in innovative scholarship, and 2) exposing the College’s increasingly diverse student body to a faculty that is just as diverse.

The plan will implement long-term, creative recruitment strategies and improve sensitivity to issues that affect retention. It also calls for a careful reexamination of faculty development opportunities, workloads, and promotion and tenure policies, all while keeping in mind the need to embed policies that support underrepresented faculty within policies that are consistently supportive of all faculty.
