Faculty Diversity and Program Evaluation
Good intentions and a commitment to faculty diversity are often not enough.
Whether increasing the number of faculty of color or women faculty in the sciences and engineering, improving faculty diversity is challenging for universities. To recruit and retain a diverse faculty it is important to examine experiences and the structural factors that affect satisfaction and productivity.

- Studies to better understand the experiences of faculty that affect retention and promotion
- Program evaluation, especially universities with National Science Foundation (NSF) ADVANCE Grants
