Faculty Diversity

Presidential Faculty Diversity Initiative

“A diverse faculty is a cornerstone of academic excellence. By reaching out far and wide to recruit and hire a diverse cohort of faculty who will then be supported, mentored, and developed in a way that fosters retention and eliminates isolation, Rutgers will set in motion a self-reinforcing academic community that is committed to diversity and inclusive excellence.”

Jonathan Holloway, Rutgers University President

How is diversity being defined?

Diversity may include, but is not limited to, ethnicity, race, gender expression or sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, ability, or other personal or professional characteristics that have led to systematic marginalization from the research and academic mission.

Working to Build a More Racially Just Future

The Institute for the Study of Global Racial Justice will bring together scholars from across the university to use humanistic theories, methods and approaches to study global issues of race and social justice.
