The goal of the Faculty Diversity Recruitment Fund is to enhance the work of search committees in promoting broad recruitment of faculty. Funding is available for expenses related to attendance at academic conferences, symposia, and other professional association meetings where opportunities for recruiting faculty that would increase the diversity of their department or school are particularly promising.
Faculty may request up to $1,500 to support travel and conferences fees and other work needed to further the goal of building diverse applicant pools. Faculty Diversity Recruitment Funds will be distributed by the Provost and Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity. Requests for funds will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis and should be submitted through the dean, to the Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity. Priority will be given to first time applicants.
Requests for funds should include name and contact information of the faculty making the request and the title and dates of the conference or meeting. If the recruitment is for a particular vacancy, please also identify the faculty vacancy to be filled in the request. Email requests to Vivian Lewis, Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity at firstname.lastname@example.org.
