About the Webinar

In recent years, colleges and universities have intensified their focus on hiring underrepresented minority faculty to serve an increasingly diverse student body. Nevertheless, many Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) staff continue to face inequity when it comes to promotion and tenure. Traditional policies tend to have unclear requirements and narrow definitions of excellence, and they do not recognize contributions in areas such as informal mentoring of BIPOC students or junior faculty. It’s time to reexamine these policies with an equity-minded approach.

Hear from a panel of academics and researchers engaged in bringing more equity to faculty policies across higher education. The discussion will explore the opportunities and challenges ahead and how to best focus efforts on creating equitable conditions to retain diversity. This webinar is sponsored by EAB.
