Implementation Team Actions
In collaboration with Human Resources and the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access, the Office of the Provost created the Educational Diversity Enhancement Program as a re-formulation of the underrepresented faculty incentives program.
The reformulated program includes a broader conceptualization of the sources of diversity that enhance the quality of academic programs, provides up to $10,000 annually in support for up to three years, and is designed to be part of the initial offer to candidates for tenure-track positions.
The guidelines for the program are posted in online the Chair’s and Director’s Handbook for easy accessibility.
Human Resources will continue to explore spousal hire outreach.
