The mission of the Office of Faculty Diversity and Recruitment is to assist the institution in achieving a more diverse and inclusive faculty by building a pipeline of historically underrepresented scholars of color and women through networking, relationship building and active recruiting. Every faculty search committee’s recruitment efforts are supported by the Office’s strategic sourcing of emerging scholars, artists and researchers.
Excellence though diversity.
What is the Office of Faculty Diversity and Recruitment?
The Office of Faculty Diversity and Recruitment provides support during the faculty search process by assisting the Provost, Deans, Department Chairs and Search Committee Members in establishing a pipeline of historically underrepresented scholars of color and women scholars that ultimately leads to a diverse faculty at RIT.
Teaching, learning, scholarship, leadership development, and student success are the focus at RIT. Our office’s current efforts are focused on expanding the pool of applicants by attracting underserved populations to faculty positions that enrich our diverse educational community. The office nurtures these relationships by providing four key initiatives to foster RIT’s diversity goals: Prospective Faculty Database; Future Faculty Career Exploration Program (FFCEP); Future Faculty Fellowship; and recruitment of diverse scholars.
