The Diversity Associates Program partners faculty members with faculty mentors to develop and implement projects that focus on one or more of the following areas:

  • race
  • ethnicity
  • socioeconomic status
  • national origin

  • age
  • religious viewpoints

Expected outcomes typically take one of the following form:

  • Disseminate research or creative endeavors, e.g. conference proposal submission, article submission, placement of creative work, grant submission, etc.
  • Develop a plan, and take initial steps, for implementing inclusive pedagogy in an upcoming semester or mentor undergraduate research regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion that leads to dissemination
  • Develop a plan, and take initial steps, for a service project, e.g. diversity dialogue, community engagement
