Title: Achieving a diverse faculty at RIT
Author: Simone, Albert
Abstract: This conference is focused on achieving a breakthrough in the recruiting of faculty of African American, Latino American, and Native American (AALANA) ancestries. While we focus today on faculty, the campus continues to work hard on the recruiting of students and staff of diverse backgrounds. While we focus today on AALANA faculty, the campus remains committed to a broad definition of diversity which includes other racial and ethnic groups, gender, deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals, individuals with physical challenges, and individuals of various sexual orientations. Finally, note that a focus on faculty recruiting must also include a full discussion of the related issues of retention and of a supportive/encouraging environment and climate.
Description: "Achieving a Diverse Faculty at RIT" At RIT, President Simone articulates his goal on why it is necessary that RIT have a thriving diverse campus. Held at the RIT Inn and Conference Center on RIT Diversity Day, 25 March 2002.
