Season 3: Hiring Diverse Faculty

Michelle Boettcher published on

Think your university lacks diversity? Then, what is the root of the problem? In coursework and in practice, student affairs professionals have been told that representation matters. As institutions must hold themselves accountable to integrate equitable practices, institutions must also find a stern commitment in diversifying members of their community for the purposes of student identity development. Join second-year graduate student Marie Silver and Julio Hernadez, Senior Associate Director for Hispanic Outreach, as they discuss the importance of faculty diversity at institutions and what Clemson University has to offer towards the university's dedication towards student success.
